Expertise

Focusing on the sustainable use of resources, at the Institute for Materials and Wood Technology, we develop and optimise multifunctional wood and composite materials and innovative products for the timber and construction industries. These products and materials are sourced from bio-based materials such as wood and other renewable raw materials. We use our extensive knowledge of these raw materials to help us find innovative new uses for them. In our work, we place particular emphasis on process reliability and product quality.
