The professorship of Wood Technology and Fiber Materials Technology is active in teaching and conducting researches in the area of material development and proccessing, under the direction of Professor Andrè Wagenführ. The focus of our research is on materials from lignocellulosic basis as well as other natural fibers. In addition to designing and manufacturing different structural materials, we investigate the technological aspects of further processing and construction of industrial units and machines.
The professorship is unique in Germany, since it covers both material production and the compelete material processing-chains to finished products. Furthermore, prodcution processes of paper material production and not wood-based composites are being studies.
