5 Emerging Non-wood Forestry based Feedstocks: Time to Diversify

About this event

Wood has been an essential part of our lives for many generations gone by and will still hold an important place in the times to come. On the other hand, the world is acknowledging the importance of sustainability in its true sense to secure tomorrow's generations. We need to act today to optimally utilize our finite forest resources, yet, at the same time, pave the way for greener and natural solutions to fight climate change.

In light of the above, tapping non-wood forestry resources such as pineapple fiber, mushroom, hemp, banana, bamboo, cactus, etc. are becoming increasingly important in the eyes of the industry ecosystem. Non-wood sources bring to the table multiple vantage points such as - their lower carbon footprint and high plant density per acre/hectare and also the cultivation cycle, which is much lower (1-3 years) when compared to conventional wood feedstocks that have a typical cycle of 20-30 years. Increasing the acceptance potential of non-wood forestry products from end industries including textile, leather, automotive, and construction is further validating and accelerating the market potential and penetration of these products during the foreseeable timeframe.

Joining our webinar will provide you with key insights and takeaways on:

  • Which are the emerging non-wood forest products? and why?
  • What are the current applications of non-wood forest products and what are their potential applications?
  • What are the key headwinds and tailwinds shaping up the journey of non-traditional forest products?
  • How SMEs, Startups, and Big Players are contributing to the non-wood forest products space?
  • FutureBridge take and prognosis
