The InnoRenew CoE hosted a PhD student from Luleå University of Technology

Benedikt Neyses is finishing his PhD studies at the Luleå University of Technology in Sweden. He spent one week with us where he performed his research work in our labs. He used the hot press in order to do surface densification experiments on solid Scots pine wood.

The objective of his PhD is to move surface densification closer to cost-effective industrial implementation. For this reason he tested many combinations of parameters: e.g. different densification temperatures, the effect of moisture content of the wood, annual growth ring orientation, and the effect of glue joints in the densified surface.

We are glad we can help in this research development.
