Millennium Lasers is currently developing a novel wood treatment process in partnership with Lignia (Fibre-7), Bangor University and Coventry University.
The aim is to enhance the mechanical properties of softwoods providing them with the typical characteristic of a hardwood. This work is on-going and results are very promising. The Company is now entering pilot phase development.
Managing Director, Paul Mason says “in the next 8 months we hope to have built a full pilot plant which will be supplied to Fibre-7 in Barry, S. Wales - here the system will be used to produce a multitude of batch samples for customers throughout the world”.
The potential and scope for this technology is extremely large and the Company expects to lead this technology for the forseable future.
