Welcome to the latest issue of WoodTECH.News.

Residues2Revenues 2023 ran last week and saw over 250 attendees discuss the significant bioenergy and bioproduct market opportunities that are available to forest owners and wood processing companies. New wood residues extraction, wood handling, processing and transport technologies were detailed to the wider industry along with details on the successful operation of regional bioenergy hubs.

In key news this month, we see a NZ$70m investment in new machinery at the Whatatane paper mill and a new NZ$30,000 WIDE Trust study tour grant for aspiring individuals. The latest Australian timber market report and the New Zealand log market updates have also been released. In both cases, prices remain lower than in previous months.

Australia has seen several personnel chagnes, with Kristina Kaminski becoming the new Site Manager of the Hyne Tumbarumba Mill, Professor Tripti Singh the new Director for the Timber Durability & Design Life Centre and the retirement of Kenneth Epp.
