Welcome to the latest issue of WoodTECH.News.
The design of the WoodTECH 2021 programme aimed at sawmillers, saw doctors and wood producers in both New Zealand and Australia is already underway. As detailed in last month’s issue, for the first time it’s being run at the same time this year – in both countries. Further details will follow in the next issue.
Those looking to save an exhibition space (packs have just been sent out to local and international key equipment suppliers) this year in either country can contact Gordon Thomson on (+64) 7 921 1384 or .
In this month’s issue of WoodTECH News, we’re seeing a welcome surge of investments within the sector. As well as the latest Australian CLT building construction, we have production increases in Tasmania’s Neville Smith sawmills, a new upgrade to New Zealand’s Pan Pack Whirinaki sawmill and updates on Timberlink’s CLT/GLT plant development. We also cover a huge investment just announced in Finland, with Metsa Fibre building a new EUR 1.6 billion bioproduct mill.
Also highlighted this month, is a new technology from New Zealand designed to lower the fire risk of timber and a discussion around the end-of-life of H2 treated timber.
Read all the above stories and more in this month’s issue. Remember, you can also send through any contributions, stories or links that we can pass onto the wider community.
