Timber Circularity Project

A circular approach to preservative treated and Engineered Wood Products.

End-of-life opportunities for preservative treated timber and Engineered Wood Products (EWPs) within the circular economy.

Timber is our most carbon neutral and renewable material for structural applications. In order to ensure long-term carbon sequestration and resource efficiency, timber needs to be utilised over multiple life cycles. Chemical treatment of timber for durability and longevity currently causes concern at end-of-life. The Timber Curcularity project aims to identify solutions to improve environmental profiles of forest and wood products within a bio-circular economy, to allow the cascading of wood products through consecutive life cycles.
