The use of wood-based panels can help reduce the environmental impact of several sectors such as the construction, furniture and packaging industries. This requires the panels to be fit for purpose and their life-cycle performance to be accurately determined. Researchers in Working Group 3 of COST Action E49 made a positive contribution by assessing the performance of both existing and new wood-based panel products.
This publication provides a broad overview of the wood-based panel industry. It is of particular interest to students and researchers in wood science and technology, structural engineering and material sciences. It reviews the achievements of research in the last few decades within and outside Europe, by outlining the scientific demand for the future in five broad themes.
This book does not only review the performance of wood-based panels but also conformity, environment and sustainability aspects. Moreover, it provides an overview of new wood-based panels and finishing with a final appraisal of research needs.
