The core of NewWave is made up by the four Manufacturing Lines (ML). By using the outputs of the Thermo-Chemical-Fractionation (TCF) the will enable the production of:
The sugars obtained from the TCF will be processed to produce polyols. This will then undergo further purification and physical treatment to obtain polyurethanes.
The sugars obtained from the TCF will face a process of dehydration & separation to ultimately refine furan-based chemicals.
The lignin obtained from the TCF will be used to produce a resin that coupled with durable wood chips will enable the realization of engineered wood panels.
Formulations of the fast pyrolisis bio-oil will be used as a wood modification agent, improving the characteristics of the wood treated.
NewWave aims to replace current construction materials with more sustainable, bio-based products. In particular, replacing steel and concrete with cross-laminated timber or replacing chemically treated wood for outdoor use with modified/engineered wood. This allows the phase out of toxic chemicals like formaldehyde and creosote.
