Remaining competitive requires intensified efforts to improve manufacturing efficiency and to extract higher-margin products from the forest resource.
Over the past few years, the lumber industry has been confronted with chip production above and beyond the demand, resulting in the creation of big surpluses. This situation may well get worse in the coming years, as pulp and paper mills—which used to be large consumers of this resource—buy less and less chips or if there is a substantial increase in production.
Through its SM2 Initiative, FPInnovations is addressing these challenges and unleashing an impact on the forest sector worldwide by revolutionizing the way small logs are processed!
The SM2 Initiative is developing innovative approaches, implementing adaptable game-changing technologies, and offering sawmills a wide range of unique end products and co-products.
