LIFE EcoTimberCell project participation in the CLIMATE NEUTRAL FOOD AND WOOD webinar

Next October, the LIFE EcoTimberCell project has the honor of participating as a speaker in the Webinar "Climate neutral food and wood", organized by the Directorate General for Climate Action of the European Commission (DG CLIMA) and the Executive Agency for Small and Medium Enterprises (EASME), which will bring together for the occasion successful LIFE and Horizon 2020 projects in the areas of agriculture, food, forestry and bioeconomy. The four sectors receive financial support for research from both European programs and contribute to the fight against climate change and ensure the proper functioning of the food and wood value chains.

LIFE EcoTimberCell publishes the Guide to the supply and characterization of structural wood

Considering the high variability of the characteristics and singularities of the wood, there is the necessity to carry out a process of classification that allows its characterization like structural wood. The recently published “Guía de suministro y caracterización de madera estructural” details this process based on the application of current regulations for the calculation of characteristic values and the assignment of qualities and class resistance to wood.

Local wood characterization in LIFE EcoTimberCell project

Wood has variability in its properties, not only depending on the species, as well for the local environment conditions and the silviculture techniques applied. It is therefore essential to know the particular properties of local wood from sustainable forest management, which will be used in the manufacture of EcoTimberCell structural systems.

Can an environmentally friendly fibreboard be part of a structural building system?

The board used in LIFE EcoTimberCell project, TABLEX, is a 100% biodegradable product that uses wood lignin as a natural adhesive. This board is applied in EcoTimberCell structural systems with improved mechanical, moisture and fire resistance qualities. To learn more about the properties of this board and its application possibilities in structural systems, please consult the HB Board Catalogue

LIFE EcoTimberCell publishes the catalogue and technical sheets on the board that will integrate the EcoTimberCell ecological architectural modular systems

Among the actions of LIFE EcotimberCell project have recently concluded the work of study and improvement of the hardboard made of wood waste fibers (TABLEX), an integral and fundamental element in the construction systems developed in the project, which stands out as a 100% biodegradable product in which the wood lignin itself works as a natural adhesive for the wood fibers union, avoiding the artificial binders use typical in other wood boards.
