IWK105/4 Bioresource Based Products
- Credit: 4
- Semester: 2
- Prerequisite: IWK102/4 Basic Bioresource Science and Technology (sequential)
This course teaches the students on wood composites and wood chemical technologies. Wood composites technology deals with comparing the efficiency between wood composites and bulk wood. Students will be exposed to the technologies of producing plywoods, particle boards, fibre boards, laminated veneer woods, parallel strand woods, and other wood composites – properties, processing and utilisation. Wood chemical technology will include chemicals obtained from trees and lignocellulose; thermal modification; charcoal and activated carbon; wood gas, and chemical modification.
