Reaching a sustainable society represents one of the key challenges of the 21st century and wood as an abundant and renewable resource has the potential to serve as one of the main materials for this transition. In this regard different concepts for the development of novel wood-based functional materials, fabricated by the in situ formation of different materials systems are shown. Another focus is laid on densified cellulose composites, a novel material concept based on delignification and densification of wood, resulting in a high performance natural fibre reinforced composite material. This approach represents a promising alternative to common glass- and fiber reinforced composites but also to other manufacturing approaches such as 3D printing.
