Bark: A material experiment

Abstract [en]

The wooden industry has came up with more then thousands of uses for the wood itself; all sorts of planks, boards and beams are cut out from the logs. They are then in a further process made into anything from the smallest wooden dowel to the largest of CLT walls. From furniture to construction material or decorative pieces.

 

The wood itself is well used all over the world. But what about the residual products? The bark that is collected after the debarking of the logs are, today, used for mainly fuel and sometimes as a soil conditioner, it is considered as a waste product for the industry and have therefore not gotten the attention that I think it deserves.

 

I have found a way to grind and then, with high pressure, press bark into eco-friendly boards, much similar to OSB and MDF. The material that I have been experimenting with are held together with only the natural lignin in the bark, so no extra glue is added.

 

I will in my thesis project research more about my invention and dig deeper in to the bark and all of its properties.

 

What can it be turned into?
