Approximately 300-400 million cubic meters of bark are produced each year during wood processing. Most of this, however, remains unused or burned. The structure and composition of the bark are special, and differs from the wood, which features a number of utilization possibilities. Agriculture, power engineering, medicine, woodpanel industry, insulation and chemical industry can successfully use and utilise the bark of different trees. This study provides an overview of the structure, properties, and utilization potential of the bark.
