“World’s first techno-economic viable recycling technology for waste woodboards”

Project description

Innovative MDF waste treatment

Renewable energy targets and bioproducts have increased the demand for wood and wood-based products. Many of these have become commodity products with ‘short’ lifespans. However, the lack of appropriate techno-economic solutions prevents their reuse or recycling. One of these commodity products, which generates high volumes of landfilled material, is medium-density fibreboard (MDF). The EU-funded FibreCarb project presents an innovative MDF waste treatment process targeting the wood based activated carbon market, a high-value market. The self-sustainable technology consists in upcycling the MDF waste and turning it into high quality activated carbon and renewable energy as a secondary product.
