A general problem in the recycling of furniture is that different materials and components areincluded within a single piece of furniture. Not only is the furniture built of components such as wood,leather, textiles, foams, steel and others but the wood component is also very often a composite madeof wood, adhesives and functional additives such as water repellents or chemical substances assurface treatments. Sometimes these additives make cost-effective recycling of the composite wooddifficult because of problems related to the separation of the components. The purpose of this studywas to present an alternative product design for wood-based panels i.e. particleboards, which reducesor avoids many of the problems in the recycling of wood-based panels used in furniture. The resultsshow that it is possible to produce wood-based panels in a way that facilitates the recycling of thesepanels although there are still some challenges which have to be dealt with. The concept as suchseems to be promising.
