From timber to trees - an afternoon seminar on wood products
The Wood Technology Society of IOM3 in collaboration with the Centre for Wood Science and Technology (Edinburgh Napier University) are jointly presenting: From timber to trees – an afternoon seminar on wood products in the round.
Wood is renewable and recyclable – but where does it fit in the circular economy? Is the best first use of wood as trees? How does wood help maintain and improve our existing buildings, and what does the future hold thanks to recent advances in wood science and timber engineering?
Their presentations will be followed by a discussion on the potential for trees as part of the built environment.
3pm until 5pm, Wednesday 11th September
This seminar is linked to the objectives of the InFutUReWood project – “How should we build today to be able to circulate tomorrow?”
