10th European Wood-Based Panel Symposium in Hamburg for the first time


In around 20 specialist presentations, speakers from the industry and research institutions will present current trends on the subjects of "Properties and Applications", "Markets", "Construction and Living", "Manufacturing and Finishing" and "Raw materials and Additives."

The topics of the presentations range from the current situation of the wood-based panel industry in Europe and the plywood and veneer industry worldwide through the development of new locations for the manufacture of wood-based materials in North America to the trade flows of wood.

On the subject of bonding, speakers will provide presentations on lignin-based adhesives, geopolymers as formaldehyde-free adhesives, bio-based adhesives for molded parts as well as the bonding of hardwood. Industry 4.0. is also an issue for the wood-based materials industry. Furthermore, a speaker from the furniture industry will talk about the highly-industrialized production of furniture and the resulting demands on materials and processes.

The agenda also includes presentations on possible influences on the surface quality of fiber boards as well as on 3D molded parts made from MDF, panel materials made from recycled wood and online quality control during the manufacturing process. Two presentations will focus on VOC and VVOC emissions from wood and wood-based materials. Michael Pollmann, Secretary of State for the free Hanseatic City of Hamburg, will speak at the opening of the Symposium.

In order for the participants to be able to benefit as greatly as possible from the internationality of the event, all the specialist presentations will be simultaneously translated into German, English and French.

The two evening events which, as in previous years, are supported by the company Sasol Wax, the International Association for Technical Issues related to Wood e.V. and other industrial enterprises, offer the participants the opportunity to network. This year, the evening reception of the Hamburg-based company Sasol Wax will take place at a location which is typical of the city.

A technical exhibition will accompany the Symposium. Companies which are interested in presenting their latest developments are invited to contact the organizers.

At the 9th Wood-Based Panel Symposium 2014 in Hanover, more than 260 participants from 28 countries took part. Approximately half the participants came from Germany, 40% from other European countries and 11% from overseas, e.g. from North and South America, India, Japan, Korea, Russia and China. The Symposium is aimed primarily at manufacturers of wood-based materials, the supply industry and research institutes.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Klima-Satellit: Mit robuster Lasertechnik Methan auf der Spur

Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.

Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: Die Schweiz in Pole-Position in der neuen ESA-Mission

Die Europäische Weltraumagentur ESA gab heute grünes Licht für die industrielle Produktion von PLATO, der grössten europäischen wissenschaftlichen Mission zu Exoplaneten. Partner dieser Mission sind die Universitäten Bern und Genf.

Die Europäische Weltraumagentur ESA lanciert heute PLATO (PLAnetary Transits and Oscillation of stars), die grösste europäische wissenschaftliche Mission zur...
