With the help of the regional statistics of Salzburg, the important statistical data on the individual Salzburg municipalities (population structure, size, density of buildings, ...) are compiled. Based on this information, a statistically meaningful pattern of communities is randomly selected, which reflects the country structure. As a result, the documents of the approved construction projects are evaluated. Descriptive data will be collected from timber structures in 2016 and 2017 and results will be categorized according to building types.

Small-sized wood particles cary a significant health risk. This research is on a new dust-removal technology, based on triboelectric charging. Ziel des Prototypenprojektes TriboWood ist die Anwendung des triboelektrischen Aufladungsverhaltens von Holzpartikel für eine neue Technologie der Holzfeinstaubreduktion in Abluftströmen. Als Zusatzgerät, das ohne zusätzliche elektrische Energie auskommt, ist diese Technologie potentiell besonders in bestehende Absauganlagen kleiner bzw. mittlerer Holzbearbeitungsbetriebe (Tischlereien, KMUs) integrierbar. Die Technologie kann die Arbeitsplatz-Holzfeinstaubbelastung signifikant verringern, wobei das Prinzip der triboelektrischen Aufladung noch weitere Innovationen zur Staubreduktion ermöglichen kann.

Functional polymer chains covalently bond to wood are able to provide wood a completely new set of characteristics. In order to control and design distribution and functionality of the introduced functional polymers, new characterization technologies are needed. Chemical-force microscopy was identified as key-methodology capable of monitoring a wide range of functional groups, their distribution at the required high resolution and function in gaseous as well as in liquid ambient.
