DescriptionForest biomass conversion to biofuels and other value-added co-products; hyper-performance advanced composites custom tailored to end use requirements; advanced high performance wood-based structures; and nanomaterials and nano-enable high performance products from wood represent important research and development investment areas for the successful transformation of the forest products industry into a reinvented and reinvigorated growth industry in the 21st Century. Research and development investments in the preceding areas will help make wood the sustainable, renewable, and recyclable material of choice in the 21st Century.
