Mutual engagement in wood preservation: from the history of the West European Institute for Wood Impregnation

Mutual engagement in wood preservation: from the history of the West European Institute for Wood Impregnation

Holz Zentralblatt 112(137): 2001-2004

An account of the foundation of the Institute (WEI) in Den Haag, Netherlands, in 1950, its moves to Amsterdam and eventually to Brussels, and activities of its 6 main technological subdivisions: wood preservatives; railway sleepers; roundwood; building timber; impregnation technology; and environmental protection. Major research programmes are discussed, including development of a coal tar preservative suitable for all of W.
