Abstract

Oriented strand board (OSB) is an engineered panel product formed by layering strands of resinated wood in specific orientations into a mat, then pressing the mat at a high temperature to form a panel of desired strength and stiffness. OSB manufacturing facilities utilize small diameter logs from...

Abstract

Sustainable materials such as laminated wood and bamboo composites are increasingly being used in the construction of green buildings across the world. Such products may be exposed to cyclic environmental conditions and exhibit moisture-induced damage. Predicting the moisture profile variation with ...

Abstract

We used models to project forest carbon stocks for a series of harvesting scenarios for 29 boreal forest management units totalling 23.3 million ha in Ontario, Canada. Scenarios evaluated for 2020 to 2050 ranged from a no harvesting option to annual harvesting of 2% of the total merchantable volume ...

Abstract

In Canada, a new collaborative approach to forest sector innovation was heralded by the formation of FPinnovations in 2007. Thus FPInnovations acquired and coordinated three long-established industry-driven (association) laboratories, respectively focusing on forestry, wood products and pulp and...

Abstract

This article presents how scrimbers are made and where they are sourced from. The article also presents the difference in every manufactured scrimbers, such as in Australia 30 years ago by crushing and rolling fibres, in Canada by TimTek using their own Scrimtek material, in China by using bamboo,...

Abstract

Several studies addressed the water footprint (WF) of countries and virtual water (VW) trade in agricultural and industrial products, but freshwater use associated with wood products has received little attention. Yet, international trade in wood products has been growing, and forestry competes...

Abstract

Willow (Salix viminalis spp.) shrubs are being planted along riverbanks, on erodible and marginal farmland. Wood chips made from the woody biomass could improve the properties of light-textured soils with low organic matter content in potatobased systems. Willow chips were applied at 0, 20, 40, and ...

AbstractFull Text

This study aims to investigate the feasibility of producing OSB from softwood species used in the Eastern Canadian softwood lumber industry in the context of the overcapacity of softwood chips traditionally produced for the pulp and paper industry. Balsam fir, black spruce, and jack pine logs were...

Abstract

The effects of microwave on the permeability of eucalyptus were studied by comparing the liquid absorption of wood chips under microwave with that under water bath. Under the same immersion conditions (NaOH 4% and mass fraction of wood chips 20%), the absorbed liquid quality of the microwave...
