This conference proposes new ways to valorize the waste and by-products of the wood industry, to diversify and especially to optimize the use of wood. For example, promising work on forest bioenergy, the use of cellulose fibers and nanocrystalline cellulose, the development of new products for protection, finishing, gluing or modification of wood with lower environmental impact and increased performance.

In general, the objective of the conference is to create a place for meetings and exchanges between the various actors working closely or remotely in research on wood materials, but also in the private sector.  It will provide an update on the latest advances in the field of biomaterials, advanced materials and bioenergy in the wood industry.

The conference will be held on  May 10 and 11 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in virtual mode. The speakers will offer a unique and multidisciplinary program. To see the details of the program, click here.
