Abstract

Wood waste generated from end of life products forms a significant source of wood material. Esti-mations of 29.6 Mm3 of recovered wood to be utilized in 27 countries in Europe and the additional potential of at least 52.5 Mm3 exist (COST E31 & UNECE document). Remarkable share of the identified resource is either not recycled at all, or is used in a low value applications. DEMOWOOD project Optimisation of material recycling and energy recovery from waste and DEMOlition WOOD in different value chains is introduced. It is part of WoodWisdom-Net Research Programme Sustainable, competitive processing and end-use concepts for forest-based industries. In DEMOWOOD, recovered wood includes all kinds of wooden material available at the end of its use as a wooden product. General aim of the project is to investigate valorization concepts for increasing the added value of waste wood in value chains for pulp production (TMP) for paper products, for particle board production, for CHP plants and for liquid biofuels production. Project results will help in saving the forest resource and increasing the use of a renewable re-source, in reducing the GHG emissions in the materials and in energy sectors and in reducing the environ-mental impact of waste wood management. Project coordinator is Institut Technologique FCBA. Work package specific objectives are presented.
