Wood construction is all the rage these days, and for good reason; wood is renewable and it stores carbon. New technologies like Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) have busted the traditional limits on height. Now architects and engineers are pushing that height limit; Berg C.F. Møller Architects and Dinell

A few years ago, though, he set his mind to the task of trying to do the same thing for Swedish lumber as he had for the aerospace industry, by figuring out how to give wood totally new properties. Ultimately, he created what he calls a transparent wood composite. More specifically, Berglund created a
The EU does not have a specific piece of community-wide legislation regulating formaldehyde emission in composite wood panels. However, some member states such as Austria, Germany, Denmark and Sweden have national legislation restricting formaldehyde emission in these products (Table 3).

Wood as a construction material has also recently come to drive the advancement of the construction process. It is the material's strength in relation to its weight that increases the opportunity to build larger and more composite components. It has therefore been possible to substantially increase the degree of prefabrication
UL is an approved Third Party Certifier for the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) for composite wood products. UL can perform testing and certification to ensure that manufacturers of composite wood products comply with the ATCM, which limits the amount of formaldehyde
Effects of butantetracarboxylic acid (BTCA) modification, choice of matrix, and fiber volume fraction on hygroexpansion of wood fiber composites have been investigated. Untreated reference wood fibers and BTCA-modified fibers were used as reinforcement in composites with matrices composed of

Composites Centre Sweden is a LTU and Swerea SICOMP collaboration which aims to advance research and education in composite materials and manufacturing. Kristiina Oksman, Professor of Wood and Bionanocomposites at Luleå University of Technology, has been awarded the Nordea Science Prize for 2016.
Abstract. One of the main drawbacks of wood fiber-based composite materials is their propensity to swell due to moisture uptake. Because the wood fibers are usually the main contributor to hygroexpansion, it is of interest to quantify the hygroexpansion coefficient of wood fibers, to compare and rank
