The ECO-SEE project aims to develop new eco-materials and components for the purpose of creating both healthier and more energy efficient buildings. We will create and symbiotically use natural eco-materials for healthier indoor environments through hygrothermal (heat and moisture) regulation and the removal airborne contaminants through both chemical capture and photocatalysis. Our objectives include advancing state of the art in the technology and application of multifunctional bio-based insulation materials, vapour permeable and hygrothermal and moisture buffering finishes, together with wood panel products, to create both internal partition and external highly insulated wall panels. Novel chemical treatments and processes will be used to enhance volatile organic compound capture capacity of materials. We will also develop highly novel photocatalytic coatings using nanoparticle technology, which will be suitable for use in interior spaces and compatible with lime and wooden surfaces. Novel material development will be completed in partnership with world-class expert organisations in indoor environmental quality. We will also create a new holistic modelling framework that combines air quality, hygrothermal comfort and acoustic quality for the well-being of building users. We will take new products through to proof of concept development with prototype manufacture, large scale tests and pilot studies. We will deliver products with at least 15% lower embodied energy, at least 20% longer life, and, for at least 20% lower build costs. Our consortium brings together a multi-disciplinary team of world-class researchers from universities and research organisations with a number of large enterprises and innovative SMEs, whose combined expertise and capacity will lead commercial development and exploitation of our products. We will engage with stakeholders, including Public and Health authorities and standards committees, and deliver training and technical guidance.

RERAM responds to the societal challenge of CLIMATE CHANGE, RESOURCE EFFICIENCY AND RAW MATERIALS in Europes forestry and woodworking sector. Knowledge, communication and cooperation gaps between research communities and innovation-driven industries significantly hamper progress towards sustainable use of the natural resource FOREST in the woodworking sector. The RERAM project targets the very low resource efficiency rate of the wood processing business in ENP Eastern Countries. The 12 partner consortium builds upon their previous collaboration between forerunner regions in Germany (NRW), Austria (Styria) and Ukraine (Carpathia), and reaches out to complementary R2I actors in neighbouring ENP countries Moldavia and Georgia, and Poland, and further beyond. RERAM will bridge the gaps in the forest and wood sectors research to innovation chain to unlock significant saving potentials of raw materials and wastes in woodworking SMEs, and to seize a major opportunity of improving green production and climate change mitigation in these emerging hotspot forest regions. By raising awareness on gains from higher efficiency, and by offering targeted benchmarking, hands-on best practices, information on best available techniques as well as training and coaching measures to entrepreneurs and intermediaries involved in RTI support, the project will enhance competitive capacities of the regions for future joint actions under Horizon 2020. By means of its dissemination channels and joint activities, RERAM builds interfaces to various existing collaborative actions and platforms, promoting cross-organizational and cross-regional dialogues, distilling complementarities, supporting a stronger intertwining of compatible regions and actors, and aligning mutual R2I strategies for increased resource efficiency, sustainable growth and innovation in the ENP Eastern Countries.

In May 2012 the 60th Anniversary of the Wood Technology Institute in Poznan was celebrated. Numerous representatives of science community and the wood industry in Poland unanimously emphasized a significant role of the Institute in the development of wood science and industry. The great effort which the Institute's scientific and technical staff put in adaptation to new operational conditions in a time of system and economic transformation in Poland was also appreciated. An occasional monograph contains memories, especially from the time of transformation and establishment of new political and economic system. © Instytut Technologii Drewna w Poznaniu Poznań 2012.

11th World Conference on Timber Engineering was held in Riva del Garda in Italy in June 2010. The conference was attended by over 650 participants from around the world. Poland was represented by Wroclaw University of Technology and Wood Technology Institute in Poznan. Numerous papers and posters presented a very wide range of theoretical and experimental work related to the wooden structural elements, joints, and the whole structures and buildings. © Instytut Technologii Drewna w Poznaniu Poznań 2010.

The invention relates to a method of protecting plywood against fungi by using ionic liquids of general formula 1:


The object of the invention are fungicides and algaecides and methods of wood protection against fungi, in particular fungi causing brown, white and soft rot, and also against filamentous fungi, especially mould fungi, blue stain fungi and algae. The bioactive substance in the formulation of the invention are mixtures of ammonium ionic liquids of the general formula 1^(1), R^(2), R^(3) and R^(4) substituents denote alkyl substituents or unsaturated hydrocarbon substituents, whereas R^(1) may also denote benzyl, and X denotes nitrate(V) anion or nitrate(III) anion or propionate or dicyanimide or dodecylbenzosulphonate anion with 1,2,4-triazole derivatives, which is tebuconazole or a mixture of tebuconazole and propiconazole. In the second aspect, the object of the invention is a method for surface and deep wood protection, in particular against fungi and algae, consisting in surface or deep impregnation of wood with a mixture according to the invention.


The present invention relates to a method of antifungal protection of particleboards and the substance for such an antifungal protection of particleboards based on an application of ionic liquids. A method of antifungal protection of particleboards comprising an introduction of a fungicide into an adhesive resin characterized in that a dispersion of an ionic liquid of the general formula 1,- R^(1) stands for benzyl, an alkyl substituent with the carbon chain length of C_(1-20), or an unsaturated hydrocarbon substituent with the carbon chain length of C_(3-20) and characterized by one or more than one multiple chemical bonds,- R^(2), R^(3) are equal and stand for alkyl substituents with the carbon chain length of C_(1-16) or unsaturated hydrocarbon substituents with the carbon chain length of C_(3-16) and characterized by one or more than one multiple chemical bonds,- R^(4) stands for an alkyl substituent with the carbon chain length of C_(1-20), or an unsaturated hydrocarbon substituent with the carbon chain length of C_(3-20) and characterized by one or more than one multiple chemical bonds,- X represents a nitrate(III), or nitrate(V), or propionate, or dicyanimide, or dodecylbenzenesulfonate anion,in a solution of an adhesive resin used for particleboard bonding is prepared and, subsequently, the so prepared composition of the resin and the ionic liquid dispersion is spread onto the chips with known methods and, thus, the process of particleboard production is continued.
