Wood, as a most important renewable and sustainable material source, has been widely used in many fields and our daily life for thousands of years. It constructs a bridge between tradition and modernity. During the manufacturing process, new materials, new connections, and new adhesives, as well as better logistics, will influence the wooden products quality, manufacturing, and transfer efficiency. In conclusion, they will influence the whole wood industry. The cascade utilization of wood in different wooden unit size scales, including macro, micro, even nanoscale. It can also be combined with various polymer systems to obtain composites with incredible performances.
The aim of this book is to present the conventional, present and future advanced functional wooden composites, from traditional wood timber, to currently popular wood-based panels, wood-bioenergy, wood-carbon stock, wood-biodiversity of nature value, including light-weight wooden materials, use of alternative fast-growing species/recycled wood, a new adapted process to hardwoods and softwood, and many others. In addition, the most recent research achievements of super wood products with different functionality using advanced and novel techniques in high added value fields will also be covered.
