    The influence of coatings on the emission behavior of wood-based materials

    An important aspect for the air quality in indoor areas is the control of potential sources of volatile organic compounds (VVOCs and VOCs). Many building products, in particular wood-based materials, are coated for practical use; the emission behavior, however, is usually investigated without the appropriate coating. For a reliable estimation of indoor air concentrations, it is therefore necessary to determine the influence of surface coatings on the emission behavior of building products.

    Basic chemicals and carbon from old bakery products

    PLEASE NOTE!

    The event has been postponed to July 14, 2020.

    In Germany, up to 100,000 tonnes of old bakery products accumulate every year which are primarily used to generate energy as they are not suitable for human consumption or as animal fodder. In cooperation with the University of Hohenheim, we are developing a process for converting old bakery products into bio-based chemicals and bio-fuel. In this Webinar, we will present our research approach and illustrate the key role played by bio-based chemicals in the production of bio-plastics and the development of a bio-based economy.
