SWI – Solid Wood Innovation

SWI – Solid Wood Innovation

Solid Wood Innovation (SWI) is a research consortium that aims to create value for its stakeholders in Australia and New Zealand in the area of solid wood processing. The value proposition is in three areas:

  • Increased manufacture of appearance related wood products targeted at export markets
  • More efficient structural and appearance manufacturing through yield optimisation systems
  • Greater energy efficiency and reduced water usage in wood drying

In July 2014 the consortium received funding for two years to July 2016. The New Zealand Wood Processors Association are currently looking at options for a new program.

FWPA will keep readers informed of any developments and opportunities for Australian industry.
