  • RISULTATO

The I-PAN project aims to design a breakthrough wood-made lightweight panel, adopting 50% of its volume recycled wood and for the remaining 50% poplar wood by using the upper part of the tree that is commonly underused. To this purpose, a novel manufacturing process is designed and innovation to existing resins is defined in order to require less energy during the drying and pressing process, minimizing VOC emission and reducing the overall cost of production. In order to reach this goal, the following specific objectives are addressed : 1) Save energy in key production steps and thus highly reduce CO2 emissions 2) Research on suitable existing glue to be employed in the manufacturing phase, in order to reduce the use of toxic or harmful solvents and contaminants to be inhaled or to contaminate the air. 3) recycling 50% of the wood and without wasting the upper parts of the poplars, thus highly reducing the pressure on primary raw materials.
