Abstract
One aim of a joint European project called DIPP is the development of lightweight particleboards made from annual/perennial farm plants such as hemp, sunflower, topinambur, maize and miscanthus. These lightweight particleboards are intended to be a possible substitution for traditional wood-based particleboards used in the furniture industry. Therefore the requirements of the EN 312 concerning the moisture-related and mechanical properties of boards for interior use have to be fulfilled.
For the production of lightweight boards particles with high intra-porosity should be used. In this way some agricultural plants are most suitable for this purpose, because the stalks of sunflower, topinambur and maize are filled with light parenchyma cells.
