Closed Projects

CTC - Close to Customer
The CTC project aimed to support European Industry to adapt to global competitive pressures by developing methods and innovative enabling technologies towards local flexible manufacturing of green personalized products close to the customer in terms of features offered, place of fabrication, time to deliver, and cost. The ultimate implementation envisions a "green factory behind a glass pane" directly in the Shopping Mall, where the customer witnesses the manufacturing of its personalized furniture. Read more
ECOINFLOW - Energy Control by Information Control
The main project objective is to facilitate implementation of state-of-the-art Energy Management System (EMS) for the sawmilling industry sector. Implementation of EMS will enable the sawmilling industry to identify saving opportunities and trigger the implementation of new energy saving measures, which, together with changed behaviour, should lead to a reduction in energy consumption in the sawmilling industry. The project target is to reduce the annual energy consumption of the European sawmilling industry by 1 TWh. The main project target groups are the sawmill industry management and operators, sawmill industry associations and energy saving programs. Read more
CelluWood - Laminated Strong Eco-Material for Building Construction of Cellulose-Strengthened Wood
The project introduces (new) technologies from other sectors for innovative uses in the defect removal and repairing, and laminating of strong wood-based building materials. It facilitates innovation in the use of nano and micro cellulose and bio-resin technologies in timber re-engineering. The final outcome of the project will be the development, testing and demonstration of the novel initiative products.  Read more 
PerformWood - Performance standards for wood in construction - delivering consumer service life need
The project objective is to kick-start the development of new standards to enable the service life specification of wood and wood based materials for construction. This is critical to ensure the future sustainable use of European forests, to ensure customers of wood products get satisfactory and reliable products and to provide supplementary evidence for life cycle evaluations of construction products.   Read more 
WoodSens -Developing and implementing formaldehyde online-senor systems in wood-based panel

WoodSens will develop and apply new sensor technology to the manufacture of wood-based panel products such as particleboards and fibreboards, in order to significantly improve their quality and safety, particularly with regard to their formaldehyde emissions. The new sensor technology when used on-line and combined with statistical process control will enable manufacturers to ensure that 100% of their products conform to the latest and forthcoming regulations on formaldehyde emission. 
EFORWOOD - Sustainability Impact Assesment of the Forestry-Wood Chain
The aim of the project wass to provide methods and tools that will, for the first time, integrate Sustainability Impact Assessment of the whole European Forestry-Wood Chain (FWC), by quantifying performance of FWC, using indicators for all three pillars of sustainability; environmental, economic and societal. The main project product is ToSIA tool. It is decision support Impact Assessment tool that will allow various end-users, such as forest-based industry, national and international policy makers and researchers to analyse the effects of changes due to deliberate actions (e.g. in policies or business activities) or due to external forces (e.g. climate change, global markets).  Read more
