Dialogue field 3: Innovative wood-based materials for new applications

High expectations have been pinned to the development, application and industrial use of wood-based composite materials in new fields. The research topics addressed in NRP 66 include wood modification and protection processes as well as the use of nanocellulose or tannins for new industrial products.
