This study focused on the recent developments in the production and use of inorganic-bonded lignocellulosic composites, also knowns as cement-bonded wood composites, produced from lignocellulosic such as wood and non-wood particles, wood wool or fibers, and inorganic binders such as gypsum (plaster of Paris), magnesia cement, Portland cement. As compared to the traditional wood-based panels such as plywood, oriented strand board, the inorganic-bonded composites have excellent properties such as flame resistance and biological durability, high water resistance and dimensional stability, and low-cost. Moreover, a widespread of lignocellulosic such as wood, non-wood, agricultural wastes can be used in the cement-bonded composites. They are used for acoustic reasons, thermal insulation, constructive frameworks, bearing purpose, acoustic application, siding application, fire and fungal protection, and other compliments in building and construction industry. Raw materials and additives significantly affect the properties of these composites, as well as production methods. The recent improvements in the production of inorganic-bonded composites and the applications were reviewed.
