Interested in wood preservation, you should register for the Canadian Wood Preservation Association (CWPA) 37th Annual Meeting that will take place on October 19-20, 2016 in Vancouver BC.
This year’s Symposium is “Protecting New Biomaterials” and we are lucky to have as the keynote speaker Dr. Scott Renneckar. Dr, Renneckar investigates the molecular structure and reactions of wood to transform trees and recycled fiber into novel materials that will serve as a platform for a green economy. Critical to this transformation is the application of fundamental polymer science principles to the characterization, processing, and performance of the biopolymers and biobased composites. His research group’s goal is to apply novel processing methods to create petroleum free composites for the next generation of advanced renewable materials from Canadian forests and fields.
