Study Develops Technique for Creating Strong, ‘Moldable’ Wood Materials

November 15, 2021

Reshaping a piece of wood may conjure images of wood-carving or whittling, but more recent pursuits have attempted to break down the cellular structures within wood to create more sustainable and durable materials.

A new study published in Science details an innovative new process that breaks down the wood’s cell walls and allows the material to be reconstituted via a “water-shock” treatment.
