Research Interest
This research focuses on using recycled raw materials as a part of wood-plastic composite (WPC). The main aim of this research is to find out widely available waste streams in different fields and use them in wood-plastic composite manufacturing. Wood-plastic composites are made from different materials, mainly reinforcing wood fibers, plastic as a matrix and different fillers and additives. So far research in this area has focused on recycled fibers and plastics, but there are a wide range of other recycled materials which are suitable for WPC. This research gives new information about potential materials for wood-fiber composites. Different materials provide different properties in WPC. In this research, material properties are studied, to get properties of WPC as suitable as possible for the intended application. Research in this area improves waste recycling by creating a new application for waste and creates new WPC materials with new features.
