About us


We want to make the use of wood more sustainable. Our goal is to provide wood with special properties, making it even better for special applications. Our research extends the uses of wood. In practice, this also means conservation of resources, because less wood is needed for the same purpose. The use of wood in practice thus becomes more economical, more sustainable and has a high potential for innovation. We do research for that.

In order to achieve our goals, we conduct basic material research and materials development for the modification of wood. We explore the chemical and physical modification processes and combinations thereof. In order to find new possibilities, we deal with the physics of the natural and also the modified raw material wood. We are looking for improved measurement methods in wood physics because even finer, more detailed measurement results can show, for example, new developments in wood drying processes. We also study the chemical and ultrastructural properties of woods. In order to make profitable and sustainable applications possible in "real life", we are looking for wood technology-oriented process technologies.

In short, we want to make wood even better. That is our task.
