Sustainable environmentally-friendly wood through tailor-made impregnation – step 1

The project ran between December 2018 och May 2019.

The aim of the project was to replace toxic cupper-based wood impregnation with an environmentally-friendly wood impregnation. The impregnation would protect the wood from attack by insects, microorganisms and fires. Furthermore, the impregnation would be durable over time.
