    Allocation in LCAs of biorefinery products: implications for results and decision-making2015In: Journal of Cleaner Production, ISSN 0959-6526, E-ISSN 1879-1786, Vol. 93, p. 213-221Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) of biorefinery products, a common challenge is the choice of method for allocating environmental burdens of multifunctional processes (feedstock cultivation and biorefinery processes), a choice which can substantially influence LCA results and hence decision-making. The aim of this paper is to explore how this choice influences results and in which decision contexts the choice is particularly important. To do this, we tested six allocation methods in a case study of a biorefinery using pulpwood as feedstock. Tested methods included: main product bears all burden, substitution, traditional partitioning methods (based on economic value and exergy), a hybrid method combining elements of substitution and partitioning, and an alternative hybrid method developed by us, which allocates less environmental burden to co-products with a high potential to mitigate environmental burdens. The methods were tested in relation to decision contexts and LCA questions of relevance for biorefineries.

    The results indicate that the choice of allocation method deserves careful attention, particularly in consequential studies and in studies focussed on co-products representing relatively small flows. Furthermore, the alternative hybrid allocation method is based on a logical rationale – favouring products with higher substitution potential – and has some other potential benefits. However, in cases where the scales of co-product flows are of different orders of magnitude, the method yields extreme results that could be difficult to interpret. Results also show that it can be important with consistent allocation for both cultivation and biorefinery processes, particularly when substitution is applied.

    Corrosion of fasteners in thermally modified timber – final report after 13 years exposure outdoors2016In: 9th European TMT Workshop (proceedings), 2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Preservative-treated and modified wood may behave differently to untreated wood, especially the properties related to the corrosion of fasteners. The main reasons for this are that preservative, treated and modified wood contain chemicals that can increase corrosion and that such wood is often used in constructions where exposure to rain or moisture is an issue. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of thermally treated timber (TMT)* on the corrosion of different types of fasteners in comparison with untreated wood. The study was part of a series of investigations of properties of TMT that SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden initiated in 2001 with financial support from the Swedish Wood Association (Jermer et al 2003). Progress reports have been published in 2005 (Jermer and Andersson 2005) and 2012 (Jermer and Andersson 2012).

    The reduced cross-section method for evaluation of the fire resistance of timber members: Discussion and determination of the zero-strength layer2015In: Fire technology, ISSN 0015-2684, E-ISSN 1572-8099, Vol. 51, no 6, p. 1285-1309Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The reduced cross-section method (RCSM) is included in Eurocode 5 (EN-1995-1-2) for the design of timber members in fire conditions. The method considers the strength and stiffness reduction beneath the charred layer by adding an additional depth (known as the ‘zero-strength’ layer) to the charring depth. The zero-strength layer is one of the key parameters for the fire design of timber members. Recently, some concerns have been raised that the zero-strength layer might be non-conservative in some applications. This paper presents the background to the RCSM, followed by a short discussion on the mechanical assumptions, simplifications and possible limitations of the method itself. Further, it discusses determination of the zero-strength layer thickness for members in bending, tension and compression, and provides guidelines on the use of standard experimental tests to determine this quantity. For demonstration of the determination procedure, the results of fire tests in bending, tension and compression were analysed following the described procedure. Results show that the zero-strength layer exceeds the value used in practice, indicate that the method of Eurocode 5 may be non-conservative and should be revised.

    Review and analysis of fire resistance tests of timber members in bending, tension and compression with respect to the Reduced Cross-Section Method2014In: Fire safety journal, ISSN 0379-7112, E-ISSN 1873-7226, Vol. 68, p. 81-99Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Reduced Cross-Section Method (RCSM) provides a popular method for the design of timber members exposed to fire, using an effective cross-section and mechanical properties at normal temperature. The RCSM was adopted from a single publication and was originally developed for single-span beams exposed to bending load. It has been introduced in Eurocode 5 for a large range of timber members, including columns under compression and members under tension. Recently, the applicability of the method and its extended applications were called into question on the basis of limitations and contradictions found by advanced simulations. This paper analyses a total of 153 fire resistance tests (117 members in bending, six members in compression and 30 members in tension) with respect to the RCSM. The analysis shows that (i) most of the references are of too poor quality, or are incomplete, to validate a design model, (ii) results with adequate information content showed a significant deviation from the RCSM, and (iii) that the RCSM may lead to a non-conservative design. For members in tension, results fit well with the RCSM, while significant deviations were found for members in compression. Members in bending show very large scatter. It is therefore recommended that the existing design approach inEurocode 5 should be revised in order to include the results of advanced calculations and appropriate tests.

    Behaviour of loaded cross-laminated timber wall elements in fire conditions2015In: Fire technology, ISSN 0015-2684, E-ISSN 1572-8099, Vol. 51, no 6, p. 1341-1370Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is increasingly being used in medium-rise timber buildings for a number of reasons, such as rapidity of construction, cost effectiveness and robustness. Like for other building materials, verification of the load-bearing performance in fire conditions is an important issue. Experimental fire tests have been performed on loaded CLT wall elements at research institutes in Sweden and Italy. In total, three large-scale and four medium-scale tests have been carried out. The aim was to gain information about initially protected and unprotected elements, to be used for classification and also for validation of calculation models. In the test series, reference tests at normal temperature were included to obtain information (e.g. stiffness, strength) about the material tested in fire conditions. In addition, model-scale fire tests were performed to investigate the loss in stiffness resulting from fire exposure and the effect of different protection types. Loaded fire tests varied in the range of 41.8 min to 120 min, depending on the CLT structure, the level of load, and the type of protection. Data on temperature within specimens and residual cross-sections were collected. Charring rates evaluated from experimental results were comparable with values proposed by Eurocode for the design of timber structures. Conservative solutions were obtained by using simplified design methods and comparing their results to test results and results of advanced modelling. It was shown that the load-bearing performance of CLT may show abrupt changes due to its layered structure. It is strongly recommended that a minimum residual depth depending on the CLT structure should be required in order to ensure robust building products.

    Building for a future climate - focus on moisture safety

    Scenarios currently predicted for Sweden’s future climate entail increased risks of moisture damage in our buildings if we do not adapt them to such changes. It is especially important to consider the risks associated with the future climate in regard to new construction and renovations to avoid costly additions and alterations in the future.

    This project presents some examples of adaptations available today; they provide an insight into the possible means of adapting properties currently available to the construction and property sector. There is also considerable potential for innovation and further development in the ways buildings can be adapted and the project highlights some areas where this will probably be necessary.

    The adaptations addressed in this preliminary study have been grouped into the areas flooding, increased temperature, humidity and driving rain. The conclusion is that the construction sector has advanced to different extents within the three areas of adaptation addressed by this preliminary study, and that potential remains for further adaptations in each of these areas.

    • In the case of flooding, which is also the most prominent area and where events clearly show the need for adaptation, there is often an awareness of the problem, and there are examples of technical measures that can be taken. However, it is unclear whether these measures have been put into practice to a sufficient extent. Here too, there is likely to be a potential for further development of solutions to improve moisture safety in buildings.
    • As for temperature and humidity, we note that the construction sector already faces challenges in the construction of moisture safe buildings and the sector is working to solve problem areas such as cold attics, foundations ventilated by outdoor air and parts of buildings where moisture has been built, or leaked, in. Temperature increases lead to more favourable conditions for microbial growth to develop. Furthermore, if the building is cooled in part or throughout, relative humidity will increase in the cold structures, which will also encourage microbial growth. If buildings are to be proofed against humidity and temperature in the future, it is important that the construction sector has climate data for scenarios for which the moisture safety of buildings can be planned. This climate data is not currently available in the simulation software used on the market.
    • In the case of measures against driving rain, the industry already displays a need to increase its knowledge of calculations and design in to reduce the risk of water penetration. There is a need for a systematic approach to all parts of a building’s exterior. There is currently room for improvement in this area as there are examples of problems with water penetration in conjunction with torrential rain, and even more so when combined with strong winds. The examples are often due to leaks at connections, joints and penetrations through a building’s exterior.

    Behandling och återvinning av outnyttjade resurser i flygaska2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande projekt har utgått från frågan "Hur kan användbara ämnen i flygaska från avfallsförbränning återföras till det industriella kretsloppet och restprodukten klassas som icke farligt avfall?"

    Sju askor har ingått i studien: en returträaska från fluidbäddpanna, en avfallsflygaska från fluidbäddpanna och fem avfallsflygaskor från rosterpannor.

    Askornas totalhalter av olika ämnen har mätts i syfte att undersöka vilka möjligt värdefulla substanser som finns. Cu, Ag, Al, Zn och Sb bedömdes som mest intressanta att återvinna. Metallhalterna i askorna är ofta låga utifrån återvinningsprocessaspekt, vilket gör att askorna ger mycket ballast i återvinningsaktörernas processer. Det finns andra sekundära råvaror, som t.ex. elektronik-skrot och slaggrus, som är mer intressanta för metall-återvinningsaktörer. För att kunna konkurrera med dessa strömmar måste askan upparbetas och/eller anrikas för att kunna passa i metallåtervinnings-processerna, vilket kan vara en framkomlig väg för några askor.

    Askorna lakades enligt SS-EN-127457-3 för att, tillsammans med totalhalterna, ge klarhet i vilka ämnen som förhindrar askorna att utgöra icke farliga avfall. Det är halterna av Cr och Pb, samt utlakningen av Cl-, Pb och SO42- som i de flesta fall utgör hinder för IFA-deponi av originalaskor.

    I syfte att undersöka möjligheten att laka ut metaller för återvinning lakades askorna med syra; dels olika koncentrationer av syra och dels med olika pH. Ingen av dessa metoder visade sig ge utlakning i sådan omfattning att det skulle vara en generellt framkomlig väg att utnyttja resurserna i flygaskorna från avfallsförbränning. I enskilda fall kan lakning för utvinning vara framgångsrikt.

    Som prioritet två låg att behandla askorna så att de uppfyller mottagningskriterierna för deponi för icke farligt avfall. Som ett första behandlingssteg tvättades askorna med vatten. Två tvätt-omgångar med vatten visade sig i vissa fall ge askor som uppfyller kriterierna. I andra fall skulle dispens för lakning av ett eller två ämnen per aska (Cl-, Cr, Pb, Sb och SO42-) behövas för att få tillstånd för deponering på IFA-deponi.

    Ett antal användningsområden för det salt som tvättas ut i vattentvättstegen har identifierats; bl.a. vägsalt, aluminiumåtervinning, PVC-tillverkning. Kravspecifikationer för dessa har jämförts med saltsammansättningen för saltet från askorna. PVC-tillverkning och aluminiumåtervinning är de två applikationer som bedöms vara mest intressanta att undersöka vidare.

    Flygaskor från avfallsförbränning måste undergå omfattande upparbetning för att utgöra attraktiva substrat för återvinning eller andra användningar.

    Tannin based foams modified to be semi-conductive: Synthesis and characterization2015In: Progress in organic coatings, ISSN 0300-9440, E-ISSN 1873-331X, Vol. 78, p. 488-493Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this study was to modify highly insulative and lightweight biorenewable foam thermosets to be semi-conductive for primarily building material applications. The foams were formed and then post-treated with in-situ polymerization of polyaniline, both doped and undoped, adsorbing and possibly absorbing (observed by SEM-EDX) to the foam structure at levels of 100–120 wt%.

    The modified tannin foams were shown to be semi-conductive in comparison to the highly insulative structure prior to polyaniline modification. While the 50% protonated polyaniline modified foams, or doped foams, had a higher conductivity than the undoped polyaniline modified foams, the acid used in fabrication of the foams provided some degree of conductivity to the undoped PANI modified foams. Moreover, the modified foams had an increased volume of 15% after modification, were more sensitive to moisture, and the polyaniline did not affect the degradation temperature of the foams.

    Fungal durability of polyaniline modified wood and the impact of a low pulsed electric field2014In: International Biodeterioration & Biodegradation, ISSN 0964-8305, E-ISSN 1879-0208, Vol. 87, no Febr, p. 26-33Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    New wood protection technologies should be effective against biodeterioration and at the same time minimize environmental impact. The present study investigates the effect of polyanilinemodification of wood and the effect of a pulsed electric field on fungal protection. The effect of fungi and a pulsed electric field on the conductivity of the modified wood was also measured. It was found that it is possible to polymerize polyaniline particles in-situ homogeneously throughout the wood specimens. The polyaniline particles themselves were not found to be anti-fungal, however when in contact with water they affected the pH drastically and inhibited fungal growth. The wood treatment with polyaniline and the connection to a pulsed electric fieldwere found to be effective in protecting the wood from deterioration when exposed to Postia placenta. The unmodified samples that were connected to a pulsed electric field lost under 10wt% due to fungal degradation. The combination of polyaniline treatment with the connection to a pulsed electric field showed a slight synergistic effect which resulted in less weight loss due to fungal degradation. However, a more brittle wood structure was observed.Leached and fungal exposed samples showed a significant drop in the conductivity, indicating that the network has broken down slightly.

    Basic density determination for Swedish softwoods and its influence on average moisture content of wood packages estimated by measuring their mass2016In: Wood Material Science & Engineering, ISSN 1748-0272, E-ISSN 1748-0280, Vol. 11, no 4, p. 248-253Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this work, a set-up with a device measuring the mass of wood packages is examined as an aid to estimate the average moisture content (MC) of wood packages. As the basic density needs to be presumed in the set-up, an estimator of the basic density as a function of log diameter is determined for Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst) and Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris). In total, 1920 specimens were collected at two different sawmills and analysed for this purpose. Specimens collected at the butt-end of pine had the greatest variation in basic density and it is recommended that they should be omitted when sawmills create their own functions for basic density estimation. Furthermore, the variation in basic density was shown to have the greatest impact on the estimated MC. A maximum error estimator of the MC became 14% at a MC of 70% and 9% at a MC of 10%. It was therefore concluded that the described method should not be used to estimate the MC of packages after drying but can serve as a valuable indicator of average green MC of a drying batch.

    Influence of fan speed on airflow distribution in a batch kiln2015In: Wood Material Science & Engineering, ISSN 1748-0272, E-ISSN 1748-0280, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 197-204Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study reports experimental data of airflow distribution as a function of fan speed in an industrial batch kiln. Measurements were conducted with 20 hot-film anemometers distributed throughout the load at two occasions. The main result was that airflow distribution did not change significantly as the fan speed was reduced, and no positions where the air movement stopped were found. It was also found that relatively more air ran in the bolster spaces in comparison to the adjacent packages as the air ran through the load.

    Internal heat exchange in progressive kilns2015In: Pro Ligno, ISSN 1841-4737, E-ISSN 2069-7430, Vol. 11, no 4, p. 318-323Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this work possible energy savings were investigated by introducing a new layout of a 2-zone progressive kiln. The layout consisted of installing a door between the first and second zone, thereby allowing the two zones to be run at different temperature levels -making internal heat recovery possible. An Optimized Two Stage continuous kiln is dimensioned for drying sideboard of Norway spruce (Picea abies L. Karst) with the aid of a commercial simulation program. Temperature levels of 75/55°C (dry bulb/wet bulb) were chosen at the pressure side of zone 1 and 45/25°C (dry bulb/wet bulb) at the pressure side of zone 2. The capacity of the heat exchanger was assumed to be sufficient to make the suggested design functional and no consideration was given to the increased air flow resistance the introduction of the heat exchanger would cause. The results indicated that roughly 30% of the heat is possible to recover in comparison to a traditional kiln. It was finally concluded that the influence of ingoing process parameters needs to be implemented in the kiln control system to fully utilize the kilns potential.

    Brandsäkerhet i moderna trähus: kartläggning av brandincidenter2016In: Husbyggaren, no 2, p. 36-39Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Flervåningshus med trästomme har kunnat byggas i Sverige sedan 1994, då vi fick funktionsbaserade byggregler. Byggtekniken är nu väl etablerad och stadigt ökande. Personskyddet är klart definierat i byggreglerna och nu har frågor om egendomsskydd aktualiserats från nya perspektiv. Som ett första steg i ökad förståelse har brandincidenter kartlagts i de flervåningshus som hittills byggts med trästomme. Kartläggningen visar att moderna flerbostadshus med trästomme har en lägre frekvens av brandincidenter som lett till insatser från räddningstjänsten än hela beståndet av flerbostadshus.

    Fire protection ability of wood coverings2015In: Wood Design Focus, ISSN 1066-5757, Vol. 25, no 3, p. 13-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The low thermal conductivity and slow charring rate of wood products may protect underlying products from being heated and ignited. A literature survey shows that such fire protective behavior of wood coverings has been verified by different methodologies in several countries in and outside Europe. A new European system with K classes for the fire protection ability of coverings has been utilized for wood products. The classes are based on full-scale furnace testing, and the main parameter is the temperature behind the fire-exposed panel after different time intervals. Three levels are defined: 10, 30 and 60 min. An extensive test program has been performed according to the new European system. The results demonstrate that all K classes may be achieved for wood-based panels (particle board, plywood, solid wood panels, OSB - Oriented Strand Board and hardboard), and for solid wood panelling and cladding. The criteria for wood products are based mainly on panel thickness. The thickness for achieving each K class may vary slightly, depending on the wood product type and on mounting conditions and fixing means. Typical thickness to reach 10 min fire protection is 10-15 mm, for 30 min 24 -30 mm, and for 60 min protection 52-54 mm. The enduse applications of wood products with K classes are mainly as wall and ceiling coverings and for protection of underlying materials and structures. Examples are protection of timber structures from becoming charred, and protection of steel structures from reaching high temperatures. K classification is required by building regulations in some countries, e. g. Germany, Denmark and Sweden.

    Fire safety in timber buildings: First European guideline2016In: SFPE Europe, no 3Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The first European design guide for fire safety in timber buildings has been developed that presents information for architects, engineers, educators, regulatory authorities and building industry professionals for the fire-safe use of timber structures and wood products in buildings. The guide, available in nine languages, aims to provide the highest scientific knowledge with regard to fire safety on the European level. The guide covers the use of design codes (such as Eurocode 5 Design of timber structures), European fire standards, practical guidance and examples for fire safe design and principles of performance-based fire design.

    The design guide is focusing on structural fire protection by providing the latest detailed guidance on load-bearing and separating functions of timber structures under standard fire exposure. New modelling not yet included in Eurocode 5 is presented. The guide includes information on the reaction to fire performance of wood products according to the new European system. The importance of proper detailing in building design is stressed by practical solutions. Active measures of fire protection are presented as important means in fulfilling fire safety objectives.

    Abstract [en]

    The combustibility of timber is one of the main reasons that many building regulations strictly limit the use of timber as a building material. Fire safety is an important contribution to feeling safe, and an important criterion for the choice of building materials. The main precondition for an increased use of timber in buildings is adequate fire safety. This paper reviews the opportunities and challenges to reach this goal by implementing Fire Safety Engineering and Performance Based Design principles.

    Brandstopp i modulbyggnader2016In: Bygg & teknik, no 6Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    Bristande brandteknisk funktion hos byggnadstekniska detaljlösningar är ofta en starkt bidragande orsak till brandspridning. Flera incidenter de senaste åren visar tydligt att byggsystem med hålrum kan ha stor inverkan på brandförloppet och medföra stora egendomsskador i alla typer av byggnader. Befintliga rekommendationer om att brandstopp måste installeras i hålrum för att hindra att dolda bränder uppstår och sprids mellan brandceller följs tyvärr ofta inte inom praktiskt byggande.brandprovning.

    Durability of the reaction to fire performance for fire retardant treated (FRT) wood products in exterior applications: a ten years report2016In: MATEC Web of Conferences: 2nd International Seminar for Fire Safety of Facades, 2016, Vol. 46, article id 05005Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Several long term experimental studies on the maintained reaction to fire performance of fire retardant treated (FRT) wood products over time are presented. They are performed according to a European system based on earlier Nordic and North American systems and include accelerated ageing according to different procedures and natural weathering up to ten years. Main conclusions are: The hygroscopic properties are unchanged compared to untreated wood for most FRT wood products used commercially. The reaction to fire properties of FRT wood may be maintained after accelerated and natural ageing if the retention levels are high enough, but several FRT wood products loose most of their improved reaction to fire properties during weathering. Paint systems contribute considerably to maintain of the fire performance at exterior application and are usually needed to maintain the fire performance after weathering.

    Fire retardant treated wood products – Properties and uses2016In: Proceedings of the International Research Group Annual Meeting 2016, 2016, article id 16-30701Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Wood is combustible, but can still perform very well in fire, especially for load bearing structures. However, visible wood surface may not fulfil the fire requirements in building codes and fire retardant treatments may be an option. The highest reaction to fire classification for combustible products may then be reached. However, the excellent fire performance of the virgin fire retardant treated, FRT, wood products may degrade over time, especially in outdoor applications. Two cases of long term durability of FRT wood products exist and standard procedures are available for limited hygroscopicity and maintained fire performance after weathering. Structural degradation may also occur, but is relevant only for load-bearing uses. Recommendations on end uses and suggestions for further research are included.

    Fire scenarios for multi-storey façades with emphasis on full-scale testing of wooden façades2015In: Fire technology, ISSN 0015-2684, E-ISSN 1572-8099, Vol. 51, no 6, p. 1495-1510Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper briefly reviews the main fire scenarios for exterior façade claddings on multi-storey buildings, together with available full-scale test procedures and performance requirements in different countries. It is obvious that there is no international agreement or approach on how to evaluate the fire safety of façade claddings. Two series of full-scale fire tests of wooden façades, in accordance with the Swedish SP Fire 105 test, are presented: one series for different proportions of untreated wood (partial wood and structural fire protection with a fire shield above the window), and another series for fire-retardant-treated wood. The results are compared with data from the intermediate scale Single Burning Item test and the small scale cone calorimeter test. A main conclusion is that SP Fire 105 is a useful tool to evaluate the fire behaviour of façade claddings, but it should be complemented with more objective measurements. Claddings with partial wood and the use of a fire shield above the window fulfil the requirements. Wood claddings treated with fire retardants (FR) may fulfil the requirements, if the amount of FR is high enough. It is also essential to demonstrate the weather durability of the FR treatment. Good agreement has been found with the other test methods used. The need to use fire stops behind multi-storey façade claddings to avoid the spread of fire in cavities is underlined.
