Upcycling wood waste into cement-bonded particleboards not only alleviates environmental burdens but also produces value-added construction materials. However, the particleboard qualities are often compromised by soluble organic extractives and contaminants in wood. Eco-friendly carbon dioxide (CO2) curing is a novel approach to accelerate carbonation and enhance properties of the particleboards. This chapter introduces the production of cement-bonded particleboards, discusses the current limitations of particleboards in production and application, articulates the roles of CO2 curing in particleboard manufacture, evaluates different CO2 curing techniques, illustrates mechanisms of CO2 curing, characterizes major controlling factors, and suggests future directions of particleboard production via CO2 utilization.
