The emission of formaldehyde vapors from adhesives such as urea formaldehyde (UF) and phenol formaldehyde (PF) is a main concern for the wood composite industry. The ability of laccase enzymes to modify the fiber in pulp industries has given hope to the wood composite industry to prepare composites without using external adhesives. In the present work, rubber wood fiber was treated with different amounts of laccase enzymes at varying time intervals. Although laccase is known to cause changes to… CONTINUE READING
