MATIERES: recycling of wood waste by chemical means

This research project aims to examine the chemical recycling of timber panels for producing high value-added bio-based materials.

The MATIERES project (MATerials and Interfaces for the Environment and the exploitation of biological RESources) is looking to deliver a response to environmental challenges by recycling and reusing wood waste.

The objective behind this research project is to recycle end-of-life MDF panels using chemical and/or enzymatic fractionation in a bid to increase their lifecycle and obtain higher value-added chemical structures.
