Summary
Sustainability and innovation are key components in the fight against climate change. Mass timber buildings have been gaining popularity due to the renewable nature of timber. Although research comparing mass timber buildings to more mainstream buildings such as steel is still in the early stages and therefore, limited. We are looking to determine the difference between carbon footprints of mass timber and traditional steel and concrete buildings. This is done with the intention of determining the sustainability and practicality of mass timber buildings.

Summary
The objective of this work was the development of environmentally-friendly, sustainable adhesive systems for the manufacture of engineered wood products (mainly glulam) to replace synthetic adhesives made from petrochemicals. Lignin-based adhesive systems were proven to provide industrial glulam products with performance...
