Research Field

Building Materials from Renewable Resources



EFRE-FIS: Kompetenzschwerpunkt Biobasierte Produkte

The EFRE (European Regional Development Fund) project is executed through a collaboration of the University of Bonn, Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, and Alanus Hochschule. The project coordinator is Professor Dr. Ralf Pude. Working in different subprojects are nine PhD students, supervised by seven Professors.
The aim of the project is the improvement of the research infrastructure of the three institutions through the development of biobased products along the threefold interconnected categories of packaging materials, building materials, and biozidic additives.
The ‚Baustoffe‘ (building materials) section is focused on the development of building materials from renewable resources in cooperation with other institutions and regional industry partners. Our focus resides on the biomass feedstream for building materials. Depending on the precise nature of the materials or products to be designed, the processing and analysis of the final properties are evaluated as result of the feedstock input. Additionally, optimized biomass type, harvest, production, and processing are to be evaluated and optimized. Herein the main tasks are the identification of biomass sources for different goals and the evaluation of agricultural parameters influencing relevant feedstream properties.
As a fast growing renewable biomass source, the focus is set on Miscanthus for the conversion to higher valued products. In this context some developments in the production of fiberboards have been made. Further research is pursuing applications for other construction materials.
Plants & Crops
Miscanthus is a fast and tall growing reed grass, which may be harvested annually with exceptional amounts of dry matter. The plant is considered to be silica rich and contains both a spongelike parenchyma structure in the core of the stems as well as a fibrous and brittle cortex. While it is often under investigation as lignocellulosic feedstock for energetic applications some research is carried out to find higher valued applications.
