  1. 1. Wood Fingerprints : Recognition of Sawn Wood Products

    Author : Tobias Pahlberg; Cris Luengo; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Träproduktutveckling; Wood Products Engineering;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with wood fingerprints and presents ways to track sawn wood products through an industrial process using cameras. The possibility to identify individual wood products comes from the biological variation of the trees, where the genetic code, environment and breakdown process creates a unique appearance for every board.

  2. 2. Exploring aspects of automation decisions : A study in the Swedish wood products industry

    Author : Roaa Salim; Mats Winroth; Kristina Säfsten; Jimmy Johansson; Kerstin Johansen; Jönköping University; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Sweden; Wood products industry; Manufacturing strategy; Automation decisions;

    Abstract : The wood products industry is important to Sweden's prosperity, and is currently facing several challenges by increased global competition. To avoid the gradual decline of the industry’s contribution to the country’s revenues and employment opportunities, the Swedish wood products industry needs to increase the proportion of the raw material that is refined.

  3. 3. Wood We Change? : Business Model Innovation Towards Sustainability Transitions: Studying the Wood Construction Industry

    Author : Andrey Abadzhiev; Mikael Johnson; Alexandre Sukhov; Martin Löfgren; Per Carlborg; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Business model; Innovation types; Sustainability transitions; Sustainable technology; Construction industry; Business Administration; Företagsekonomi;

    Abstract : Innovations based on sustainable technologies have been widely considered as a remedy for addressing societal and environmental problems in many industries. However, the large-scale adoption of such innovations goes beyond technology and requires organizing the business in a way that drive industrial transformations across actors and system layers, such as market structures, institutional frames, consumer behavior, and business values.

  4. 4. Characterization, toxicity and treatment of wood leachate generated outdoors by the wood-based industry

    Author : Henric Svensson; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Wood leachate; Log yard runoff; Stormwater; Toxicity; Artemia salina; Vibrio fischeri; Constructed wetlands; Forestry and Wood Technology; Skog och träteknik;

    Abstract : Wood is a natural raw material, and would hardly be considered a risk to the environment. However, the handling of wood materials on an industrial scale has been shown to have a negative impact on water bodies that run-off from industrial sites that process wood-based materials.

  5. 5. Acid-catalyzed Liquefaction of Industrial Side-streams for Producing Wood Adhesives and Particleboard

    Author : Wen Jiang; Stergios Adamopoulos; Sheikh Ali Ahmed; Sergej Medved; Carsten Mai; Johannes Konnerth; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Bark; Catalysts; Industrial side-streams; Liquefaction; Oat husks; Optimization; Particleboards; Polyurethane; Polyhydric alcohols; Wood adhesives; Wood sawdust; Forestry and Wood Technology; Skog och träteknik;

    Abstract : Big quantities of residues and side-streams are generated annually from forest-based and agricultural industries all around the world and present a relatively unexplored renewable resource. Due to the absence of a regularly updated and systematic database of supply, industrial residues and side-streams usually end up in landfill disposal, are used for energy generation, or remain at the production sites.
