About us

Company details

Research and development at the Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research WKI in Brauschweig is focused on an optimized and future-looking utilization of wood and other renewable raw materials.

The main emphases of the WKI's work are in process engineering, wood preservation and emission protection, the quality assurance of wood products, material and product testing, organic building  materials including wood-plastic composites (WPC) and wood in construction.

Our applied research activities rely on close collaboration with small and medium enterprises of the wood and furniture industry and the ancillary industries. In its quality as an accredited testing body, materials testing and quality supervision fall within the scope of the WKI. It renders expert opinions on damage events and provides advice regarding the repair of same.
