Wood-based materials are extensively used for residual construction worldwide, especially in Japan. Most wood-based materials are fabricated using adhesives, some of which are not environmentally friendly. As an alternative to chemical adhesives, we explored this issue using nanofiber technology, especially the use of cellulose nanofibers (CNF), as(More)
Wood-based materials are used extensively in residual construction worldwide. Most of the adhesives used in wood-based materials are derived from fossil resources, and some are not environmentally friendly. This study explores nanofiber technology as an alternative to such adhesives. Previous studies have shown that the three-dimensional binding effects of(More)
This paper reports on an empirical investigation about regional economic impacts by the promotion of wood chip utilization in Maniwa city, Japan. We clarify the estimated potential of regional economy development by using input–output analysis for Maniwa city. The result indicates that 315 million JPY of woody chip products can be estimated to generate(More)
