  • The concept The idea behind this project would be utilizing not only woodchips, but all sorts of parts, materials, and reclaimed wood from recycled buildings for the manufacturing of one of a kind recycled furniture. Websites such as http://reusewood.org/ make easy the access to a variety of wood t…
    According to the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), water is the first material used in the world.  This liquid gold is an essential resource for the ecosystem, the biodiversity which humans and more generally the earth. Unfortunately, in many part of the world polluted wa…
    Surfing is a unique sport that creates a deep connection between its athletes, the ocean, and Mother Nature. However, there’s is a major challenge within the surfboarding community: the materials used for the production of surf boards are highly toxic to the environment and those that work with …
    I am proposing utilizing the recycled wood chips to create a stable and dense particle board, as is done by Egger (egger.com) amongst other European manufacturers using high concentrations of recycled wood chips – 30-50% depending on the manufacturer. This would be the first stage in the manu…
    Cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) obtained from wood by-products materials such as wood chips and sawdust can be used to produce affordable low cost ballistic armor.Prepared properly, CNCs are stronger and stiffer than Kevlar or carbon fibers, so that putting CNC into composite materials results in high…
    Wood dust can be used in making cardboard harder and to improve its properties. Wood dust is something that is available in a large quantity and people are looking for ways to get rid of it. On the other hand there is an ever lasting demand for card board boxes for transport of goods. I think cardb…
    I discovered this use of saw dust for making sculptures by an accident, saw dust fell into my wood glue container and I removed it from the container and once it was dry it was rock solid and can be carved like wood. When I was kid I used to make paper mache with wood glue and paper pulp so this ch…
    Perhaps the best way to deal with the wood waste is to slip it into an existing product line.  The City of Vancouver has a commitment to support “greener” building solutions. I propose that the City of Vancouver, FPInnovations and CAWP invite the Ontario company, Durisol, to consider o…
    Hello everybody. The project considered here isn’t a festive one but a need exists. We have to deal with death with a maximum of respect and here is my proposal. In case of cremation, the deceased is placed in a coffin and sent to the cremator. The coffin is here to maintain a solemn side to the …
    Climbing is an existing sport. Limits are just specified to be pass. The best experience is on cliff for freedom and nature but it is not always possible due to the weather, the time or the localization. Nonetheless, to progress a regular and diversified training is necessary. That’s why today we…
    My idea proposes for an app called Chipsell which makes it easy to find nearby people who are in need of wooden chips and saw dust. Using this people can get rid of “wood waste” and simultaneously earn some cash in the process. After getting the wood chips/saw dust, people who are in ne…
    My concept proposes to use the wood dust, wood chips converted to wood dust by combining with suitable binding agent to coat materials made with cement and non-wood materials to give a feel, texture and appearance of wood.The wood dust with binding agent will fill the texture of cemented surface an…
    Hello Fp Intell Lab, I would like to thank you for inviting me to be apart of your new competition.  Like you, I am always searching for new uses for natural materials.  Your latest contest happens to coincides with a problem I have been trying to solve.  My project is called Paper Plates.  It…
    I suggest that the City of Vancouver works with FPInnovations, the Center for Advanced Wood Processing (CAWP) and Linea Ceiling and Wall Systems, to develop a recycled wood acoustic panel (http://www.lineaceilings.com).  Linea would be a new addition to the team, although they already offer  buil…
    My concept proposes the use of wood dust/wood shavings by filling it in hollow bricks used in construction of houses, especially for houses in non-equatorial regions where temperatures high at day and temperatures gets very low at night. Here wood dust will be mixed with anhydrous lime to preserve …
    My concept proposes the use of wood dust/wood chips for adsorbing oil from oil spills which is a big environmental problem these days. There are two ways to use wood dust/ wood chips for this process 1. Using Oil spill bags Here in this method wood dust is filled in oil permeable sacks and dropped …
    My concept proposes to use wood chips or saw dust to make the filaments of wooden 3D printer. Models in wood are constructed from a brown, very fine, granular powder made from wood chips. The surface has a sandy, granular look, and is slightly porous. Wood is perfect for complex models, as it allow…
    Today, connections are in the center of stakes in wood constructions and must be more and more stiff and strong.  In other part, each building evolves over the time inducting new constraints and modifications of solicitations. Wood is a great material but not homogenous. It has forces like strengt…
    During the last years, lots of sport events have been appeared and grown, notably in outdoor sports with a high media exposure and a return towards the nature.
