Formaldehyde-free straw-based particleboards

Wanhua

The Chinese Wanhua Industrial Group is one of the world's largest manufacturers of MDI resin. Since 2006, the Group has also devoted itself to developing and producing formaldehyde-free panels made of wood and straw and founded the subsidiary Wanhua Ecoboard for this purpose.

In 2015, Wanhua Ecoboard signed its first contract with Dieffenbacher for a straw-based particleboard plant, taking advantage of the German manufacturer’s expertise in developing equipment to process alternative raw materials, specifically annual plants and fast-growing woods. A second order followed about a year later.

In 2017, Wanhua and Dieffenbacher started to work on a third project. The latest order includes the core package of a straw particleboard plant, from the forming station and the 8.5-foot wide and 28-meter long CPS with suction system through to the raw board handling. The plant will be installed at Wanhua's site in Jingmen in the Chinese province of Hubei.
