Insulation & Facades

Examination of beech and grand fir in regard to developing innovative wood-based materials – Environmentally friendly insulation made of beech wood

This project examined the use of beech wood fibres for the production of high quality insulation products. Such products make a positive contribution to climate protection by supporting CO2 neutrality and the conservation of fossil resources. The wood in question can be dried using microwave ovens, which is significantly more energy efficient than conventional drying methods.
