Furfural stops tropical deforestation,

which according to Greenpeace, is responsible for approximately 20% of world greenhouse gas emissions. How?

Furfuryl alcohol, which is made from bio-renewable furfural, is the main ingredient used for woodmodification processes like kebony, which convert softwoods in looks and properties that are similar to tropical hardwood. Originally designed to replace the toxic CCA process, furfurylation of wood offers non-toxic woods for playgrounds, floors, cladding, etc.
