Recycling today constitutes the most environmentally friendly method of managing wood waste. A large proportion of the wood waste generated consists of used furniture and other constructed wooden items, which are composed mainly of particleboard, a material which can potentially be reused. In the current research, four different hydrothermal treatments were(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the possibility of using waste paper recovered from old corrugated containers (OCC) as substitute for wood particles in the production of particleboards. Three proportions of wood chips: waste paper flakes (100:0, 70:30, 50:50) were used in the production of one-layer and the core of three-layer experimental(More)
In this work, the biological resistance of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) wood impregnated with nano-sized zinc oxide and zinc borate against the fungi Daedalea quercina, Poria placenta and Serpula lacrymans was evaluated. It can be concluded that nano-sized zinc oxide inhibited the biological degradation of pine wood against Serpula lacrymans, while it(More)
Furfurylation is a modifi cation process carried out in order to improve the biological resistance and dimensional stability of wood. In this research work, a three-year outdoor weathering test of furfurylated wood was performed using the following wood materials: a deck of furfurylated radiata pine (Pinus radiata), a deck of furfurylated maple (Acer spp.),(More)
