Wood products are manufactured by bonding wood material (e.g., veneer, fibers, particles, and strands) or agricultural fiber, typically with resin under heat and pressure. A number of pollutants are emitted from wood product manufacturing processes – acetaldehyde, acrolein, formaldehyde, methanol, phenol, and propionaldehyde – and abatement and product recovery are required.
We provide explosion protection for wood processing factories where wood waste and dust pose a hazard. Various wood processing technologies show that flammable wood waste or dust accumulates in these facilities. In terms of evaluating the risk of explosion, finely sedimented dust is hazardous and in the event that this finely sedimented dust suspends and is connected to an ignition source, and explosion will occur.
One of the problems arising in wood processing and production of popular materials based on wood, such as plywood, wood-chip and wood-fiber materials (chipboard, hardboard, OSB) is removing harmful substances from the air. Emissions from these industries are characterized primarily by the presence of phenol and formaldehyde, and the level of discharge is significant, up to 100 000 m3/hour of contaminated air.
Wood wastes include woods from forestry, railways – sleepers, telecoms – telephone poles, timber manufacturing processes and the construction industry. Many of these types of wood tend to be contaminated with chemicals and other materials. This contamination can make the waste wood difficult to use in traditional biomass to energy processes and potentially hazardous to the environment. Our Gasplasma® energy from waste technology is able to transform efficiently the organic biomass into a pure, hydrogen-rich...
Wood treatment used to protect lumber from fungi, insects, UV damage, water damage and general wear. When treating wood the proper balance of treatment solution must be monitored to ensure the highest quality while minimizing waste and excess cost due to treatment usage or product rejection.
