    The staff of the Department of Technology and Design of Wood Products took part in the XXXI International Scientific Conference of the Faculty of Wood Technology of Warsaw University of Life Sciences - WOOD - MATERIAL OF THE XXI CENTURY. The conference was held in the town of Rogov, where the university's training center is located.

    Head of the Department of Technology and Design of Wood Products, Olena Pinchevska, was invited to speak at the plenary session of the conference with a presentation on the topic “Peculiarities of woodworking specialists training in the National University of Life and Environmental Sciences of Ukraine”. Her report sparked interest among her colleagues, who expressed hopes for future cooperation between NUBiP of Ukraine, Warsaw University of Life Sciences (SGGW) and Poznań University of Life Sciences.

    In addition, young scientists of the Department also presented their reports during conference sessions. Sergiy Mazurchuk presented “A method of wood defects identification in sawn blanks manufacturing from hardwood species”. Olha Baranova delivered a presentation on “The research of shock method of plywood quality control”. Yuri Lakyda’s topic was “Mechanical and technological features of wood-composite material”. Olexandra Gorbachova dwelled on “Anatomical changes of thermal modified hornbeam wood”, and Andriy Spirochkin presented “Accelerated drying of blanks from red oak wood (Quercus rubra)”.

 

 

    The research results sparked a lively friendly discussion.

   After the conference, our delegation visited the Faculty of Wood Technology of Warsaw University of Life Sciences (SGGW). Dean of the Faculty, Professor Krzysztof Krajewski, personally acquainted the guests with the structure of the Faculty and the work of its departments and educational laboratories.

    At first, the guests visited the Department of Physics and its laboratories. The next was the Department of Technology and Entrepreneurship in the Wood Industry. Professor Marek Grześkiewicz presented his research on thermal modification of wood, changes in the properties of massive wood and veneer.

 

 

   Modern furniture elements, furniture and joinery components, and furniture facades are widely represented in the laboratory of the Department of Furniture Production.

 

 

   
    Dean of the Faculty of Wood Technology presented the laboratory, which is related to his scientific interests, namely prevention of wood-decay fungi. The guests were impressed by modern equipment, which allows to artificially affect the wood with various types of fungi, and then develop the means of treatment.

 

   
    There is a special laboratory at the Faculty, where students have the opportunity to work with hand tools and wood when making stairs, doors, etc.

 

    One can easily notice how Warsaw University of Life Sciences (SGGW) by all means supports the development of the Faculty of Wood Technology.
