Significance for science
With proposed program basic knowledge in wood science will be broaden, and new basis for continuous work on this field will be prepared. Results was published in leading journals from the field of wood science and thereof contribute to the human knowledge about wood. Due to interdisciplinary nature, was publish in other fields as well. Certain part was be published in Slovenian language, to ensure transfer to experts and to ensure development of Slovenian terminology. Publications enabled programme group to continue editing of some Journals or to remain their position as members of editorial board International biodegradation and biodeterioaration (Pohleven, Humar), Wood resarch (Humar), Wood industry (Gorišek, Petrič, Čufar), Dynamic relationships management journal (Kropivšek), Journal of adhesion science and technology (Petrič, Šernek), Acta silvae et ligni (Oven, Medved), Les (Oven, Petrič, Šernek, Humar), The open environmental engineering journal (Humar). Studying the interactions between wood and chemicals used broaden knowledge of the chemistry of preservative solutions and wood, as well as their interactions. The development and/or optimisation of the experimental and instrumental methods significantly enhanced the ability to use several methods in science of lignocellulosic materials. New knowledge in the field of adhesives, lignocellulosic composites and building with wood. Knowledge about techniques for bonding, joining and manufacturing of composites. Understanding adhesion when bonding lignocellulosic materials with other materials, and in case when the new adhesives are used. Training and education in the wood companies provide employee competencies to perform the work, which in turn leads to their increased motivation and greater efficiency and quality of the work. This is a prerequisite for innovation in the development of the companies, the search for new and better solutions and increase competitiveness, which opens opportunities for further expansion and employment. Research in the framework of the proposed programme strengthen scientific international and national collaboration in the field of wood science.
Significance for the country
The major part of Slovenian culture-historical heritage is made or based on wood. This heritage is endangered deu to insufficient maintaining and several biotic and abiotic decay factors. In order to keep this heritage for latecomers, all knowledge needs to be used. Significant part of this knowledge was and will be developed in the frame if this programme. Improved measures to reduce damage in Slovenian forests due to storms, and more optimal use of wood. Development of the moisture based indicators will enable prediction of service life and maintenance intervals for selected materials, which will enable use of these materials for purposes for which they have not previously been used, due to the lack of knowledge. Predictive service life data will be useful for other companies involved in wooden construction. This will increase the consumption of domestic wood, which does not require much energy for machining, and will decrease dependency on imported material and energy in Slovenia. Programme of innovative producers of wood coatings and products will be wider (e.g. Chemcolor, Silvaprodukt). Producers with relevant production conditions (e.g. Tanin) will be able to start with a production of sustainable liquefied wood based coatings (competitiveness, new jobs, sustainable development of Slovenian regions. New knowledge will enrich the academic study programmes. Proposed research will result in scientific excellence and in development of new industries, which will be grounded on innovative and high value added products from biomass. This approach guarantees development of entire forest-wood-paper chain. New technologies of joining and bonding will enable the production of new lignocellulosic composites products, elements and complete solutions in the field of sustainable construction. New knowledge will allow us to be able to develop new technologies for new products with which it will be possible to penetrate new markets; to set up new businesses; provide jobs and development; reduce the environmental burden of toxic substances; reduce the risks and diseases at work, as well as economically rational utilization of a variety of natural residues from the manufacture and recycling of existing lignocellulose composites. The thermal insulation of products and buildings will be improved, what will result in more sustainable consumption of energy. There are two cubic meters of carbon dioxide stored in each cubic meter of wood. If more wood will be utilised for wooden products or constructions, more CO2 will be stored in wood. Training and education in the wood companies provide employee competencies to perform the work, which in turn leads to their increased motivation and greater efficiency and quality of the work. This is a prerequisite for innovation in the development of the companies (and sector), the search for new and better solutions and increase competitiveness, which opens opportunities for further expansion and employment. Wood is an important source for infrastructure, too (poles, railway ties, bridges, noise barriers,...). This infrastructure requires reliable protection. The collected data will enable us to predict maintenance intervals and replacement times more accurately.
