EcoBuild consists of several different focus areas which are presented below.
New wood fibre composites with both thermoplastic and thermoset matrices are developed. We create durable composites with tailored properties. It is done by selection of fibre type and shape, polymer matrix, processing methods and fibre modification.
EcoBuild deals with development of biobased binders intended as alternatives to the current, petrochemical based binders for panels, boards and engineered wood products. This area also focuses on the development of panels, boards and engineered wood products as well as evaluation of such.
