Łukasiewicz Wood Technology Institute (Wielkopolska Region, Poland) is looking for partners for a project „Development of low-emisssion biocomposites using innovative manufacturing and finishing technologies” which will be submitted for the call of proposals within the framework of Horizon 2020 programme.
Project idea: The aim of the project is to develop technology of production of biocomposites with reduced emission of formaldehyde and volatile organic compounds (VOC) using alternative lignocellulosic, waste and recycled raw materials. It is assumed that these biocomposites will be an alternative to commonly used used wood-based materials, which are made using mainly synthetic adhesives based on amines and shredded wood with a small amount of recycled wood. Depending on the intended purpose and taking into account the possible thermo-sensitivity of some materials used as components in the production of biocomposites, it was assumed that the biocomposites’ surface will be finished by varnishing it in the UV-LED technology (full curing LED). This technology is more environmentally friendly and saves resources compared to classic UV technology.
Project idea: project leader, partners
