As we travel through the Swedish landscape, the most common material we see might well be timber. In parallel with our imperative change to a more sustainable mindset, the demand for timber and the necessary knowledge to grow, process and engineer it will increase. Wood technology is the science of how we can best utilise timber. This may deal with how to design and develop standards, as well as developing knowledge about how wood functions. All so that industry will be able to cultivate, process and sell wood in the optimal manner in a sustainable society.
RISE possess in-depth expertise in wood technology and wood construction. We know wood in all its forms and has experience of working with all from raw material and processes to the development and projection towards a finished product or building. We also perform research on how wood can replace fossil materials in the future. Our laboratories are well equipped and accredited for a number or tests and inspection methods. RISE is a, so called, notified body which means that we can perform testing and certification for CE markings.
