The participating researchers for instance discussed the heating of wood. Using heat and water allows for the wood to be bent.
– More research is needed on the heat treatment of wood because there are still problems with the method. To scale up the wood treatment from a lab environment to industrial production also poses a challenge, says Dick Sandberg, professor at Wood Technology at Luleå University of Technology.
During the three days of the conference there were oral presentations, lab demonstrations and poster presentations . The conference was organized within the framework of the European Cooperation in Science and Technology, COST, which is a European cooperation in the field of scientific and technological research. The purpose is to link together research between EU countries.
