    Description

    We are developing chemically bonded ceramic phosphate binders for the production of biofiber-based composite materials. These binders promise to have better processing and properties than some current cement and polymer resin binder systems. The ceramic phosphate binders (termed Ceramicrete), if used in place of cement and polymers, will significantly reduce the overall consumption of energy, curtail detrimental environmental effects compared to existing processes, and produce wood-based composite products with enhanced fire resistance, mildew resistance, dimensional stability, and durability. We are investigating the use of these binders to develop value-added products from forest thinning wood waste, treated wood waste, wood processing residue, and primary pulp and paper mill residue.
