The RecAPPture mobile and web application is intended for owners and manufacturers of discharged wood products for sale, purchase, lease or purchase.

With the planned demolition of decrepit buildings, significant amount of wood suitable for further use roof can be obtained. Cascading use of wood prolongs its lifespan and further storage of CO2 bounded in the wood. Demand for products from discharged wood is increasing and there a problem with ensuring sufficient quantities of suitable used wood occurs. Owners of such wood are often unaware that they can hand it over or sell it to a company that will make a new product out of it. For this purpose, in cooperation between the company M Sora and the University of Primorska, a mobile application and a web interface RecAPPture were developed. It enables the owners of used wood to submit their offer on discharged wood. The application enables a quick exchange of information regarding the availability of the quantity and type of used wood between the provider and the interested company.
