Sunday, 13 December 2020 Prof. Andreja Kutnar author of a new book published by Taylor & Francis Ltd.

Dr Andreja Kutnar, the InnoRenew CoE director, together with colleagues Dick Sandberg, Olov Karlsson and Dennis Jones finished writing the book “Wood Modification Technologies: Principles, Sustainability, and the Need for Innovation”.

The need for this book arises from the recognition that in the last years the market for durable products using modified wood increased and sustainability became a great concern. Therefore, authors put together key elements of changes in the wood modification filed, presented principal technologies used, and pointed out the need of considering environmental impacts, the whole life cycle and embodied energy of the materials used in construction.

“It was a long and exciting journey and I hope readers of the book will find it useful for broadening their horizons about wood modification and perhaps they find some interesting research inspirations. The field of wood modification offers several possibilities for developing innovations and for fostering sustainable practices,” said Dr Kutnar.

The book is being published by Taylor & Francis Ltd. and will be available for purchase on 15 March 2021.
