Flame-retardant wood-based materials through lignin adhesive
In order to enable a more extensive utilization of wood-based materials in high-rise construction and public buildings, flame-retardant treatment is necessary. In this project, we are developing a bio-adhesive on the basis of lignin, which simultaneously serves as a flame retardant. Furthermore, we are thereby opening up an ecologically and economically interesting application possibility for lignin.
