Traditional construction materials have significant environmental impacts. Woodoo is a sustainable alternative, which uses a patented process to replace wood’s lignin content with a unique biopolymer to transform natural wood into a strong, light, durable and translucent material that is as strong as concrete and steel. The process is also highly scalable and employs standard industrial equipment like solvent tanks and pressure vessels, combined with the patented biopolymers. Woodoo can be contracted to wood processing facilities around the world to create unique interiors for automobiles, light wooden car bodies and even sustainable wooden buildings up to 48 storeys in height. The EU-funded WOODOO project aims to scale up production output, reduce production time and costs, and decrease scrap wastage.
