Reclaim and Recycle


Wood is the material of choice for sustainable and environmental friendly construction.

Wood waste and reclaimable fractions are still under-valued. Wood Products Extension at NCSU has started the development of a new program to promote a better understanding for the reuse of wood. From a sustainable utilization point of view wood is typically used in a one-time fashion. Currently, most of wood waste is either land filled or directly converted to energy. We have decided to make a difference and educate all entities along the chain of production and consumption about opportunities to successfully reclaim and recycle wood.
