This is a partnership comprising Sundeala Ltd, Building Research Establishment Ltd and AeroThermal Group to the Technology Strategy Board-
The project, which started in May 2014 and will be completed in October 2015, will develop new wet-
Board products are used in high volumes in the UK (e.g. as floor protection, sheathing and screening through to furniture). Existing board products are largely imported into the UK and are manufactured from wood fibre, often with the inclusion of synthetic adhesive binders. Difficulties in recovery, recycling and combustion mean that most waste board product ends up in landfill after a single use.
The LEIFPROD project will build on a manufacturing process for fibreboard products from recycled and by-
The project will develop innovative commercial models (e.g. leasing) enabling the recycling/reuse of products at scale. It will also develop design approaches to enable incorporation of cellulose fibres from low quality sources such as treated municipal solid waste, enabling them to be incorporated into the board manufacturing process.
