The sawmill industries: the backbone of the bio-economy
“In an evolving green economy the European Sawmill Industry plays a key role and it can be defined as the backbone of the bio-economy. Indeed residues from sawmill processes can be converted into a broad range of wood-based products including bio-composite materials, bio-plastics, textiles and carbon-neutral biofuels. Simultaneously, the production of saw-logs, and the correlated use of by products and residues, complies with the resource efficiency principle, guarantees the highest profitability for forest owners and assures the raw materials needed for developing the bio-economy”.
