WOODOO - A bio-based translucent wood material for sustainable construction applications
Woodoo has developed a process that turns wood into a low-carbon footprint, high-performance material, opening new opportunities for its use in construction, automobiles and aeronautics.
By removing lignin from the material's cellular scaffold and replacing it with a bio-based polymer, Woodoo has overcome the properties in wood that make it unsuitable for demanding applications in the construction industry – low durability, limited mechanical resistance, recurring maintenance costs – to create a molecularly enhanced translucent wood material that is weatherproof and fire-resistant, three times more resistant than native wood, low maintenance, and market competitive.
