VIDEO: Circular Wood for the Neighborhood


Wood is increasingly demanded. It is used to make furniture, doors, windows, fences, and even as main construction material of houses and offices. Wood is a valuable renewable material and can store CO2, if grown and harvested correctly. Yet much waste wood from renovations and demolitions is discarded and burned. Its large variety in sizes, types and quality, and the presence of paint, nails or other metal left inside makes re-using even more difficult. Smart design and production technologies can help overcome these problems, enabling second-life wood applications with a positive impact. The research project ‘Circular Wood for the Neighbourhood’ explores these technological solutions for housing corporations.
