Coniferous woods have been the preferred timber up until now, but their availability in Germany is decreasing, thereby favoring that of hardwood. The objective of this collaborative project is the development of a procedure for the more efficient production of veneers as well as the production of durable materials on the basis of beech wood. This is intended to preserve or even increase the proportion of wood in the construction sector. At the Fraunhofer WKI, the focus is placed upon the avoidance of peeling cracks and product testing.
