New Wood Polymer Material

September, 2018

NOVO-TECH, a company based in Aschersleben (Saxony-Anhalt), is now marketing a completely new group of materials known as wood polymer materials. The company’s megawood® product consists of at least 70 percent natural fibers – exclusively from shavings from the lumber industry (which are increasingly burned) – and no more than 30 percent polymers and additives. The company has received financial support from the state’s investment bank as well as R&D support from the Fraunhofer Institut.
