Wood energy to be the largest exhibition segments at INTERFORST


INTERFORST 2014 will be focused on wood as a renewable resource. After cropping and harvesting, this topic will rank second at the International Key Trade Fair for Forestry and Forest Technology.

Well-known exhibitors will present machinery and equipment for the entire energy wood process chain in Munich from 16 to 20 July - ranging from timber harvesting, transportation and processing up to the use of wood as a source of energy. Another focal point will be the presentation of the quality of solid fuels and their quantification.

In many areas of forestry, the use of wood as an energy source exerts a noticeable influence, a trend which is also recognizable in forest technology. There are two tendencies: on the one hand, the consumers' requirements regarding the quality of the final product are continuously rising; on the other hand, resource efficiency at the different levels of the entire process chain is an important topic. In addition, an increasing number of new areas have been opened up as a result of the use of wood as a source of energy in the last few years, such as for example short rotation coppices (SRC) or wood sourced from landscape conservation projects.

Currently, there is an intense technology transfer, particularly in the field of harvesting machinery. The traditional sales market of the forest sector economy has been clearly extended. Many feller-bunching units can meanwhile be used in all three areas. Werner Steininger, Managing Director of WESTTECH Maschinenbau GmbH evaluates the current changes in the market as follows: "In the meantime, one out of four products we sell is used in short rotation forestry and for wood sourced from landscape conservation projects. We constantly tap new fields of application which are partly not very closely related to forestry. We are working intensively on the steady improvement of the service life of our new products, including their wear and spare parts."

This evaluation confirms another current trend for the whole industry: resource efficiency. It is reflected in many areas - whether in connection with gasoline saving chain saws with direct injection engines or with low-consumption drive units in large machines or with new wedge geometries for wood splitters requiring less pressure to split wood of the same thickness.

The special show on the topic of "Monitoring nutrient removal during timber harvesting" is entirely dedicated to this area. Here, harvester units that contribute to reducing the removal of nutrients in the timber stand will be presented. Furthermore, the quality of harvested timber is increased by delimbing and debarking the felled trees at the same time.

A great number of market-leading companies have registered for participation to present their innovations in the area of wood energy.

These topics will also be presented and discussed at the congress, the forums and the special show placed under the motto "Using wood - moving responsibly into the future".
