Tree bark shown to produce adhesives and composite materials
from Woodworking Network
According to a Swiss research team, tree bark may prove to be more than a waste product. Studies conducted by the National Research Program "Resource Wood" show that tannins (organic molecules) extracted from native conifer tree bark can be used to produce adhesives and composite materials. The Resource Wood research team has developed a process to extract the valuable tannins from tree bark. The team sees great potential.
