Wood composite set to eliminate CO2 emissions of the ceramics industry

Project description

Wood composite sustainable alternative to ceramic products

Ceramics is one of the world's most polluting industries, emitting high levels of CO2 and dust particles in addition to producing large quantities of contaminated water. A sustainable alternative to ceramics called Woodio is the first 100 % waterproof solid wood composite material that can be mass produced to replace ceramic products. Woodio includes patent-pending innovations for both composite materials and production methods. The functionality of the material plus its unique look and feel make it an ideal replacement for ceramic products, and it has been successfully used in hotels and restaurants in Finland. The EU-funded WOODRY project will facilitate scale-up from small-scale manual production to an automated manufacturing facility, thereby significantly reducing manufacturing costs.
