Abstract: Wood waste, possibly originating from deconstruction of buildings is processed to obtain fine
fractions which are further embedded into innovative high performance prefabricated
geopolymeric panels, intended to be used as façade panels or internal lining. For these uses
reaction to fire (RtF) is one of the most important characteristics. Inside the EU InnoWEE
project (Innovative pre-fabricated components including different waste construction
materials reducing building energy and minimizing environmental impacts) this aspect is
studied on the innovative panels. As the material’s basis is inorganic there is a possibility of
compliance to high demanding reaction to fire classes (non-combustible materials).
Furthermore as there are different variants of the material that may also include CDW wood
chips, it is important to understand how the variable content of wood chips influences critical
parameters for the RtF. Different variants of CDW geopolymers based panels were assessed
with respect to the reaction to fire, using cone calorimeter. Results have shown that CDW
panels containing 20% of wood comply to the A2 class and are suitable for all uses, with
respect to fire. Higher wood content (maximum 50% of wood chips) yields hardly
combustible materials.
