Chemical processing of wood in Finland

Timber Bulletin for Europe 34(Suppl. 13): 1-7

Chemical processing of wood in Finland

A paper presented at the thirty-ninth session of the Timber Committee of the ECE, held in Geneva, 12-16 Oct. 1981. Of the 50 million m3 industrial roundwood consumed in Finland in 1980 26 million m3 is by the mechanical forest industry (sawn goods, plywood, particleboard and fibreboard) and 24 million m3 by the chemical forest industry (kraft, sulphite, and mechanical pulps). The chemical industry also receives 8 million m3 waste wood from the mechanical industry.
