Project objective: BarkBuild will tackle the societal challenge of climate change by developing new, long-lasting wood building materials with low environmental impact that will replace products having a larger carbon footprint and poor environmental soundness. The primary research objective of the BarkBuild project is to develop new barkbased wood protection and building formulations and demonstrate their technical performance, safety, and sustainability in wood impregnation, coating, and polymer composites in outdoor and indoor use.
