Abstract: This work intended to present the state of commercialisation and production of modified wood in Portugal and also show how modified wood is being used in Portugal. There are mainly four companies selling modified wood in Portugal and a few more using or reselling modified wood acquired from the others. The marketing of modified wood in this country has started about 10 years ago but only in recent years the sales became significant. Treated wood is sold both in rough or profiled. The main applications are cladding, decking and flooring Modified wood commercialised with Thermowood® treatment is mostly Nordic pine, fir and birch and with Kebony® is Nordic pine, Acer, birch and SYP (southern yellow pine). Wood treated in Portugal is mainly maritime pine but also some Ash. Tests are being made to allow the treatment of eucalypt wood. Some of the companies selling modified wood have done quite a few projects, some of which were awarded several prizes.
