Sustainable use of wood
Areas of research include wood composites, thermohydromechanical woodworking and wood bonding, and restorative environmental design. Also, they focus on research into environmental impacts, both new materials and products, and technologies. By successfully combining competences in the field of timber and objectively assessing environmental impacts, their contribution to science in the field of wood modification and the creation of a healthy living environment is recognized in the international arena, where they are constantly seeking confirmation and criticism. The research is also strongly internationally integrated, as evidenced by the inclusion in as many as 4 COST actions in the field and research visits carried out through the promotion of Slovenian science and bilateral cooperation projects.
