There are several factors that contribute to the increase of wood waste in Brazil. Among them, the predatory exploitation of natural resources, the rudimentary techniques of wood processing, but also the absence of wood waste management policies. However, the increase of industrial demand for forest resources may be important for construction and furniture industries if considered the optimization of wastes from wood processing, for the development of alternative value-added products. Through the use of technological innovation and the technical feasibility found in researches to recycle these wastes in the form of homogeneous particleboard, HP, this study used Eucalyptus sp. and Pinus sp. wastes treated with Copper Chromium and Boron (CCB), for manufacturing panels used in the construction of an full-scale architectural prototype, that empirically test the efficiency of the applicability of these panels as floor coverings and walls. The panels were manufactured in laboratory using wood waste from reforestation areas in the region of São Carlos, São Paulo State, obtained from sawmills, joinery and local industries according to the Brazilian Standard ABNT NBR 14810:2006 and the international standard (USA and Canada). By monitoring the results and the excellent performance of the prototype built the work proved the feasibility and efficiency of the use of these panels in the coatings market. (AU)
