The objective of the WOODRUB project is the development, testing and demonstration of innovative environmental friendly products made from recycled wood and recycled tyre rubber. Conventional construction materials will be designed and demonstrated.

The development will first be done on laboratory scale, followed by upscaling processes in order to develop and design the wood-rubber composite prototypes. An eco friendliness study and LCA will be carried out. The products will be compared with other conventional building materials and other end of life routes of waste wood and waste rubber.

The recovered wood will be waste wood from households (furniture, doors, windows, floors, etc.). The material is chemically contaminated by glue, lacquer, paint and coatings but not by preservatives. The wood will be processed into chips without any prior biological, thermal or chemical treatment. This is an innovative approach since the removal of the chemicals is difficult and time/ cost consuming.
