Composite lumber made from the sliced and compressed oil palm fronds is a new type of wood composite introduced as an alternative to future timber. These lumbers (COPaF) are composed of compressed fibres from the agricultural waste fronds of Oil Palm trees, which are cultivated and found in abundance in Malaysia. The technology involved in manufacturing the products is quite straightforward. The fronds are peeled of their skin and sliced in a longitudinal direction. The materials are then compressed using rollers compressing machine before undergoing the gluing and assembly process to form the Compressed Oil Palm Composite Lumbers with enhanced density and strength.
