Share project

The project envisages the creation of a modern production plant for growing paulownia (with the possibility of further processing it into briquettes, furniture, etc.) for the needs of domestic and foreign markets. Cultivation of paulownia, the raw material of which can be used in various industries, restores the ecological balance and contributes to the preservation of nature. In addition, the plant does not threaten biological biodiversity, is a honey plant, and its leaves process CO2 well. Such production fully complies with the Sustainable Development Goals until 2030 and is designed to preserve the ecological balance and solve the problem with energy resources.

The tree with the world’s highest growth potential is best suited for bioethanol production. Biofuel can be obtained in two ways: with the help of special microorganisms that use cellulose as a source of energy and release ethanol as a result of metabolic processes, or with the help of certain enzymes that break down cellulose into the desired product.

The latter method is used more often because it is cheaper. Branches and other waste of paulownia, which are formed in the process of woodworking, are also used for the production of bioethanol.

Paulownia, which has high heat transfer rates, also makes good pellets.

Wood, which is 30% lighter than pine, is called “aluminum” in the woodworking and furniture industry. Not prone to shrinkage, good and clean paulownia wood due to its fine fiber structure is ideal for making furniture, plywood sheets, houses, panels for interior decoration, parquet board, musical instruments, etc.

Due to its lightness, paulownia wood has found wide application in shipbuilding, aircraft and automobile construction. Currently, paulownia is registered in the Institute of Plant Species – an official body of the EU.
