FPInnovations is pleased to announce the success of the first edition of FPInnovates, a conference on innovation and the impact of new technologies that was held to inform, inspire, and change participants' perspectives on innovation and collaboration between the forest industry and other sectors.
 
The one-and-a-half-day event, which opened in Montreal on November 25, attracted 200 delegates from across the country who were all inspired by future change, informed by industry leaders, and educated and energized by innovators.
 
Among those who addressed the conference was futurist and global trends and innovation expert Jim Carroll who inspired and challenged the audience to think passionately about the qualities of world class innovators, and talked about the importance of thinking big and taking chances: some people see a trend or a threat, but world-class innovators see an opportunity.
 
The audience heard from experts in different fields, including a venture capital investor, Wils Theagene, who spoke about financing an innovation and understanding the investor; an authority on international finance and banking, Arvind Jain, who discussed the impact on the forest products industry of contemporary global economic challenges and understanding how the economy works; and a young entrepreneur, Eric Termuende, named one of the top 100 emerging innovators under 35 globally, who highlighted innovation in the workforce: the next generation thrives on innovation, change, and disruptive ideas. The audience also heard the government perspective from Glenn Mason, Assistant Deputy Minister of Natural Resources Canada and the Scandinavian perspective from FPInnovations' Entrepreneur in Residence Lars Sandberg.
 
A panel discussion comprising the movers and shakers of the forest industry discussed important issues ranging from the future of the forest industry, adopting and adapting global paradigms, new applications of wood-fibre-based materials and products, climate change, government policies, creating successful partnerships, and building a resilient culture. Panelists included Kevin Edgson, President and CEO of EACOM Timber Corp.; David Lindsay, President and CEO of the Forest Products Association of Canada; Yvon Pelletier, President of Fortress Paper; Daniel Archambault, Executive Vice President of Kruger; and Mark Feldinger, Vice President of Canfor. FPInnovations' President and CEO Pierre Lapointe served as the moderator.
 
The conference also featured case studies and 50 posters highlighting the latest progress, successes, and technological advances by FPInnovations, university stakeholders, and other innovators.

FPJoule
 
 
Harvest residues are an important source of bioenergy. The interest in this renewable biomass lies in its local availability.
 
Traditionally, wood is assessed on a volume (m³) or weight (odt = oven-dry tonnes, gmt = green-metric tonnes) basis although these units don’t accurately represent the value of biomass when used for energy purposes (kW= kilowatt, MW= megawatt, GJ=Giga joules). The monetary value of the biomass depends partly on its heating value which is the amount of energy that can be obtained when burning. FPJoule is able to calculate the amount of usable energy in the biomass.

Optitek
 
 
The Optitek software program is a tool that allows the simulation of any transformation process found in the softwood lumber industry today.
 
Optitek is a mill-wide log breakdown simulator, and it models the processes of converting logs/timber into lumber products in a sawmill, from log bucking and primary breakdown to the trimmer and sorter bins. It can represent, among others, bucking operations, sawing systems (including curve-sawing), edging and trimming operations. Optitek takes into account the equipment parameters, resource characteristics (species, dimensions, shapes) and the lumber products parameters (dimensions, wane rules, value).
 
Once a base case is established for a particular sawmill, it can be used to quantify the impacts of changes (i.e. in log supply, capital investments, lumber prices, new/updated sawing lines, new/additional lumber products) on the recovery of lumber and by-products. It allows sawmill management to predict in advance the expected benefits of proposed investments.
 
Many modification scenarios can be analyzed, including:

The agreement aims at pooling knowledge, providing access to new markets and launching common projects
 
 
FPInnovations, a Canadian technological research institute and world leader in research and development of scientific solutions for the forest industry, and the Institut Technologique FCBA (Foret Cellulose Bois-construction Ameublement), a technical industrial centre in France, active in the forest/wood/furniture industries, are proud to announce that they have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop research partnerships and a framework for information exchange between their respective organizations.
 
This three-year agreement took effect on November 1 of this year. The initial phases will include increased sharing of experiences, knowledge, resources and best practices and will progress toward developing common research projects. The memorandum of understanding more specifically aims to create synergy between the two institutes, to stimulate open exchanges on mutual development orientations and to establish collaborative projects in the interest of both organizations' members and respective forest industries.
 
Two research topics have been identified to launch this agreement:
 
- Construction of mid-rise and tall wood buildings as well as the building products adapted to such structures;
 
and
 
- End-of-life-management of wood buildings by applying principles of flexibility, deconstruction, reuse, recycling, and life-cycle analysis (LCA) of products.
 
"We are very proud of this agreement, which marks an important step for FPInnovations,"  said Pierre Lapointe, President and CEO of FPInnovations. "Not only does it provide Canada's forest industry with privileged access to new knowledge and considerable market potential, but it is also a unique showcase for our organization on the international scene. This memorandum of understanding is bound to be beneficial to everyone."
 
"Our common actions with our Canadian peers date back a long time—to the 1990s, in fact," remarked Georges-Henri Florentin, Executive Director of the FCBA. "Our partnership, signed within COP21's symbolic framework, on topics of global innovations in the field of tall buildings, is intended to spearhead our trades in the forest-wood industry, the 14th strategic sector in France."
 
Facts and figures
 
FCBA covers all forest, pulp and wood industries, including construction and furniture, on French territory. The Institute employs over 350 people spread out in seven centres and working in the following fields: silviculture, paper pulp, logging, sawmilling, framework, carpentry, structure, wood-based panels, furniture, packaging and miscellaneous products.
 
In 2011, FPInnovations published its CLT Handbook, a guide on cross-laminated timber (CLT) that addresses the design, construction and implementation of CLT systems adapted to current standards and codes, and thereby marked the introduction of massive construction in Canada.
 
FPInnovations subsequently published the Technical Guide for the Design and Construction of Tall Wood Buildings in Canada (2014) and the Mid-rise Wood-Frame Construction Handbook (2015), that combine the knowledge of many groups of experts in the organization.

FPInnovations is pleased to announce the success of the first edition of FPInnovates, a conference on innovation and the impact of new technologies that was held to inform, inspire, and change participants' perspectives on innovation and collaboration between the forest industry and other sectors.
 
The one-and-a-half-day event, which opened in Montreal on November 25, attracted 200 delegates from across the country who were all inspired by future change, informed by industry leaders, and educated and energized by innovators.
 
Among those who addressed the conference was futurist and global trends and innovation expert Jim Carroll who inspired and challenged the audience to think passionately about the qualities of world class innovators, and talked about the importance of thinking big and taking chances: some people see a trend or a threat, but world-class innovators see an opportunity.
 
The audience heard from experts in different fields, including a venture capital investor, Wils Theagene, who spoke about financing an innovation and understanding the investor; an authority on international finance and banking, Arvind Jain, who discussed the impact on the forest products industry of contemporary global economic challenges and understanding how the economy works; and a young entrepreneur, Eric Termuende, named one of the top 100 emerging innovators under 35 globally, who highlighted innovation in the workforce: the next generation thrives on innovation, change, and disruptive ideas. The audience also heard the government perspective from Glenn Mason, Assistant Deputy Minister of Natural Resources Canada and the Scandinavian perspective from FPInnovations' Entrepreneur in Residence Lars Sandberg.
 
A panel discussion comprising the movers and shakers of the forest industry discussed important issues ranging from the future of the forest industry, adopting and adapting global paradigms, new applications of wood-fibre-based materials and products, climate change, government policies, creating successful partnerships, and building a resilient culture. Panelists included Kevin Edgson, President and CEO of EACOM Timber Corp.; David Lindsay, President and CEO of the Forest Products Association of Canada; Yvon Pelletier, President of Fortress Paper; Daniel Archambault, Executive Vice President of Kruger; and Mark Feldinger, Vice President of Canfor. FPInnovations' President and CEO Pierre Lapointe served as the moderator.
 
The conference also featured case studies and 50 posters highlighting the latest progress, successes, and technological advances by FPInnovations, university stakeholders, and other innovators.

FPJoule
 
 
Harvest residues are an important source of bioenergy. The interest in this renewable biomass lies in its local availability.
 
Traditionally, wood is assessed on a volume (m³) or weight (odt = oven-dry tonnes, gmt = green-metric tonnes) basis although these units don’t accurately represent the value of biomass when used for energy purposes (kW= kilowatt, MW= megawatt, GJ=Giga joules). The monetary value of the biomass depends partly on its heating value which is the amount of energy that can be obtained when burning. FPJoule is able to calculate the amount of usable energy in the biomass.

Optitek
 
 
The Optitek software program is a tool that allows the simulation of any transformation process found in the softwood lumber industry today.
 
Optitek is a mill-wide log breakdown simulator, and it models the processes of converting logs/timber into lumber products in a sawmill, from log bucking and primary breakdown to the trimmer and sorter bins. It can represent, among others, bucking operations, sawing systems (including curve-sawing), edging and trimming operations. Optitek takes into account the equipment parameters, resource characteristics (species, dimensions, shapes) and the lumber products parameters (dimensions, wane rules, value).
 
Once a base case is established for a particular sawmill, it can be used to quantify the impacts of changes (i.e. in log supply, capital investments, lumber prices, new/updated sawing lines, new/additional lumber products) on the recovery of lumber and by-products. It allows sawmill management to predict in advance the expected benefits of proposed investments.
 
Many modification scenarios can be analyzed, including:

The agreement aims at pooling knowledge, providing access to new markets and launching common projects
 
 
FPInnovations, a Canadian technological research institute and world leader in research and development of scientific solutions for the forest industry, and the Institut Technologique FCBA (Foret Cellulose Bois-construction Ameublement), a technical industrial centre in France, active in the forest/wood/furniture industries, are proud to announce that they have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop research partnerships and a framework for information exchange between their respective organizations.
 
This three-year agreement took effect on November 1 of this year. The initial phases will include increased sharing of experiences, knowledge, resources and best practices and will progress toward developing common research projects. The memorandum of understanding more specifically aims to create synergy between the two institutes, to stimulate open exchanges on mutual development orientations and to establish collaborative projects in the interest of both organizations' members and respective forest industries.
 
Two research topics have been identified to launch this agreement:
 
- Construction of mid-rise and tall wood buildings as well as the building products adapted to such structures;
 
and
 
- End-of-life-management of wood buildings by applying principles of flexibility, deconstruction, reuse, recycling, and life-cycle analysis (LCA) of products.
 
"We are very proud of this agreement, which marks an important step for FPInnovations,"  said Pierre Lapointe, President and CEO of FPInnovations. "Not only does it provide Canada's forest industry with privileged access to new knowledge and considerable market potential, but it is also a unique showcase for our organization on the international scene. This memorandum of understanding is bound to be beneficial to everyone."
 
"Our common actions with our Canadian peers date back a long time—to the 1990s, in fact," remarked Georges-Henri Florentin, Executive Director of the FCBA. "Our partnership, signed within COP21's symbolic framework, on topics of global innovations in the field of tall buildings, is intended to spearhead our trades in the forest-wood industry, the 14th strategic sector in France."
 
Facts and figures
 
FCBA covers all forest, pulp and wood industries, including construction and furniture, on French territory. The Institute employs over 350 people spread out in seven centres and working in the following fields: silviculture, paper pulp, logging, sawmilling, framework, carpentry, structure, wood-based panels, furniture, packaging and miscellaneous products.
 
In 2011, FPInnovations published its CLT Handbook, a guide on cross-laminated timber (CLT) that addresses the design, construction and implementation of CLT systems adapted to current standards and codes, and thereby marked the introduction of massive construction in Canada.
 
FPInnovations subsequently published the Technical Guide for the Design and Construction of Tall Wood Buildings in Canada (2014) and the Mid-rise Wood-Frame Construction Handbook (2015), that combine the knowledge of many groups of experts in the organization.

FPInnovations is pleased to announce the success of the first edition of FPInnovates, a conference on innovation and the impact of new technologies that was held to inform, inspire, and change participants' perspectives on innovation and collaboration between the forest industry and other sectors.
 
The one-and-a-half-day event, which opened in Montreal on November 25, attracted 200 delegates from across the country who were all inspired by future change, informed by industry leaders, and educated and energized by innovators.
 
Among those who addressed the conference was futurist and global trends and innovation expert Jim Carroll who inspired and challenged the audience to think passionately about the qualities of world class innovators, and talked about the importance of thinking big and taking chances: some people see a trend or a threat, but world-class innovators see an opportunity.
 
The audience heard from experts in different fields, including a venture capital investor, Wils Theagene, who spoke about financing an innovation and understanding the investor; an authority on international finance and banking, Arvind Jain, who discussed the impact on the forest products industry of contemporary global economic challenges and understanding how the economy works; and a young entrepreneur, Eric Termuende, named one of the top 100 emerging innovators under 35 globally, who highlighted innovation in the workforce: the next generation thrives on innovation, change, and disruptive ideas. The audience also heard the government perspective from Glenn Mason, Assistant Deputy Minister of Natural Resources Canada and the Scandinavian perspective from FPInnovations' Entrepreneur in Residence Lars Sandberg.
 
A panel discussion comprising the movers and shakers of the forest industry discussed important issues ranging from the future of the forest industry, adopting and adapting global paradigms, new applications of wood-fibre-based materials and products, climate change, government policies, creating successful partnerships, and building a resilient culture. Panelists included Kevin Edgson, President and CEO of EACOM Timber Corp.; David Lindsay, President and CEO of the Forest Products Association of Canada; Yvon Pelletier, President of Fortress Paper; Daniel Archambault, Executive Vice President of Kruger; and Mark Feldinger, Vice President of Canfor. FPInnovations' President and CEO Pierre Lapointe served as the moderator.

FPJoule
 
 
Harvest residues are an important source of bioenergy. The interest in this renewable biomass lies in its local availability.
 
Traditionally, wood is assessed on a volume (m³) or weight (odt = oven-dry tonnes, gmt = green-metric tonnes) basis although these units don’t accurately represent the value of biomass when used for energy purposes (kW= kilowatt, MW= megawatt, GJ=Giga joules). The monetary value of the biomass depends partly on its heating value which is the amount of energy that can be obtained when burning. FPJoule is able to calculate the amount of usable energy in the biomass.

Optitek
 
 
The Optitek software program is a tool that allows the simulation of any transformation process found in the softwood lumber industry today.
 
Optitek is a mill-wide log breakdown simulator, and it models the processes of converting logs/timber into lumber products in a sawmill, from log bucking and primary breakdown to the trimmer and sorter bins. It can represent, among others, bucking operations, sawing systems (including curve-sawing), edging and trimming operations. Optitek takes into account the equipment parameters, resource characteristics (species, dimensions, shapes) and the lumber products parameters (dimensions, wane rules, value).
 
Once a base case is established for a particular sawmill, it can be used to quantify the impacts of changes (i.e. in log supply, capital investments, lumber prices, new/updated sawing lines, new/additional lumber products) on the recovery of lumber and by-products. It allows sawmill management to predict in advance the expected benefits of proposed investments.
 
Many modification scenarios can be analyzed, including:

The agreement aims at pooling knowledge, providing access to new markets and launching common projects
 
 
FPInnovations, a Canadian technological research institute and world leader in research and development of scientific solutions for the forest industry, and the Institut Technologique FCBA (Foret Cellulose Bois-construction Ameublement), a technical industrial centre in France, active in the forest/wood/furniture industries, are proud to announce that they have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop research partnerships and a framework for information exchange between their respective organizations.
 
This three-year agreement took effect on November 1 of this year. The initial phases will include increased sharing of experiences, knowledge, resources and best practices and will progress toward developing common research projects. The memorandum of understanding more specifically aims to create synergy between the two institutes, to stimulate open exchanges on mutual development orientations and to establish collaborative projects in the interest of both organizations' members and respective forest industries.
 
Two research topics have been identified to launch this agreement:
 
- Construction of mid-rise and tall wood buildings as well as the building products adapted to such structures;
 
and
 
- End-of-life-management of wood buildings by applying principles of flexibility, deconstruction, reuse, recycling, and life-cycle analysis (LCA) of products.
 
"We are very proud of this agreement, which marks an important step for FPInnovations,"  said Pierre Lapointe, President and CEO of FPInnovations. "Not only does it provide Canada's forest industry with privileged access to new knowledge and considerable market potential, but it is also a unique showcase for our organization on the international scene. This memorandum of understanding is bound to be beneficial to everyone."
 
"Our common actions with our Canadian peers date back a long time—to the 1990s, in fact," remarked Georges-Henri Florentin, Executive Director of the FCBA. "Our partnership, signed within COP21's symbolic framework, on topics of global innovations in the field of tall buildings, is intended to spearhead our trades in the forest-wood industry, the 14th strategic sector in France."
 
Facts and figures
 
FCBA covers all forest, pulp and wood industries, including construction and furniture, on French territory. The Institute employs over 350 people spread out in seven centres and working in the following fields: silviculture, paper pulp, logging, sawmilling, framework, carpentry, structure, wood-based panels, furniture, packaging and miscellaneous products.
 
In 2011, FPInnovations published its CLT Handbook, a guide on cross-laminated timber (CLT) that addresses the design, construction and implementation of CLT systems adapted to current standards and codes, and thereby marked the introduction of massive construction in Canada.
 
FPInnovations subsequently published the Technical Guide for the Design and Construction of Tall Wood Buildings in Canada (2014) and the Mid-rise Wood-Frame Construction Handbook (2015), that combine the knowledge of many groups of experts in the organization.

FPInnovations is pleased to announce the success of the first edition of FPInnovates, a conference on innovation and the impact of new technologies that was held to inform, inspire, and change participants' perspectives on innovation and collaboration between the forest industry and other sectors.
 
The one-and-a-half-day event, which opened in Montreal on November 25, attracted 200 delegates from across the country who were all inspired by future change, informed by industry leaders, and educated and energized by innovators.
 
Among those who addressed the conference was futurist and global trends and innovation expert Jim Carroll who inspired and challenged the audience to think passionately about the qualities of world class innovators, and talked about the importance of thinking big and taking chances: some people see a trend or a threat, but world-class innovators see an opportunity.
 
The audience heard from experts in different fields, including a venture capital investor, Wils Theagene, who spoke about financing an innovation and understanding the investor; an authority on international finance and banking, Arvind Jain, who discussed the impact on the forest products industry of contemporary global economic challenges and understanding how the economy works; and a young entrepreneur, Eric Termuende, named one of the top 100 emerging innovators under 35 globally, who highlighted innovation in the workforce: the next generation thrives on innovation, change, and disruptive ideas. The audience also heard the government perspective from Glenn Mason, Assistant Deputy Minister of Natural Resources Canada and the Scandinavian perspective from FPInnovations' Entrepreneur in Residence Lars Sandberg.
 
A panel discussion comprising the movers and shakers of the forest industry discussed important issues ranging from the future of the forest industry, adopting and adapting global paradigms, new applications of wood-fibre-based materials and products, climate change, government policies, creating successful partnerships, and building a resilient culture. Panelists included Kevin Edgson, President and CEO of EACOM Timber Corp.; David Lindsay, President and CEO of the Forest Products Association of Canada; Yvon Pelletier, President of Fortress Paper; Daniel Archambault, Executive Vice President of Kruger; and Mark Feldinger, Vice President of Canfor. FPInnovations' President and CEO Pierre Lapointe served as the moderator.
 
The conference also featured case studies and 50 posters highlighting the latest progress, successes, and technological advances by FPInnovations, university stakeholders, and other innovators.
 
Quote
 
"FPInnovations is proud to have assembled the leading players and thinkers in innovation and at the same time presented the most recent technological advances in the forest industry. This unique, engaging, and thought-provoking event has encouraged participants to think outside the box and to view the innovation process as a solution to the challenges they are facing. Feedback from the audience has been overwhelmingly positive and we are very pleased that FPInnovates has inspired and kindled new ways of thinking about the future of the forest sector."

FPJoule
 
 
Harvest residues are an important source of bioenergy. The interest in this renewable biomass lies in its local availability.
 
Traditionally, wood is assessed on a volume (m³) or weight (odt = oven-dry tonnes, gmt = green-metric tonnes) basis although these units don’t accurately represent the value of biomass when used for energy purposes (kW= kilowatt, MW= megawatt, GJ=Giga joules). The monetary value of the biomass depends partly on its heating value which is the amount of energy that can be obtained when burning. FPJoule is able to calculate the amount of usable energy in the biomass.
 
 
What FPJoule does :
 
  • The Energy cost section determines the amount of energy obtained when burning a given mass of residues of a certain species, type, and moisture content. A conversion tool calculates monetary equivalents (weight, volume or energy).
  • The Economic advantages section calculates annual potential savings by modifying the traditional energy supply for biomass.
  • The Fuel parameters section allows the user to view the different values used in FPJoule. The Reference section lists the information sources used in FPJoule.
  • The Report allows the user to see an overview of the analysis and to print a copy.

 

Inputs: The user can modifiy all the values in FPJoule except calculated results shown in grey.

Optitek
 
 
The Optitek software program is a tool that allows the simulation of any transformation process found in the softwood lumber industry today.
 
Optitek is a mill-wide log breakdown simulator, and it models the processes of converting logs/timber into lumber products in a sawmill, from log bucking and primary breakdown to the trimmer and sorter bins. It can represent, among others, bucking operations, sawing systems (including curve-sawing), edging and trimming operations. Optitek takes into account the equipment parameters, resource characteristics (species, dimensions, shapes) and the lumber products parameters (dimensions, wane rules, value).
 
Once a base case is established for a particular sawmill, it can be used to quantify the impacts of changes (i.e. in log supply, capital investments, lumber prices, new/updated sawing lines, new/additional lumber products) on the recovery of lumber and by-products. It allows sawmill management to predict in advance the expected benefits of proposed investments.
 
Many modification scenarios can be analyzed, including:
 
  • Different bucking strategies
  • Choices of the best sawing patterns
  • Addition of new products
  • Changes of wane rules and price lists in optimizers
  • Installation of optimization equipment
  • Target sizes and saw kerf reduction and much more...

The agreement aims at pooling knowledge, providing access to new markets and launching common projects
 
 
FPInnovations, a Canadian technological research institute and world leader in research and development of scientific solutions for the forest industry, and the Institut Technologique FCBA (Foret Cellulose Bois-construction Ameublement), a technical industrial centre in France, active in the forest/wood/furniture industries, are proud to announce that they have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop research partnerships and a framework for information exchange between their respective organizations.
 
This three-year agreement took effect on November 1 of this year. The initial phases will include increased sharing of experiences, knowledge, resources and best practices and will progress toward developing common research projects. The memorandum of understanding more specifically aims to create synergy between the two institutes, to stimulate open exchanges on mutual development orientations and to establish collaborative projects in the interest of both organizations' members and respective forest industries.
 
Two research topics have been identified to launch this agreement:
 
- Construction of mid-rise and tall wood buildings as well as the building products adapted to such structures;
 
and
 
- End-of-life-management of wood buildings by applying principles of flexibility, deconstruction, reuse, recycling, and life-cycle analysis (LCA) of products.
 
"We are very proud of this agreement, which marks an important step for FPInnovations,"  said Pierre Lapointe, President and CEO of FPInnovations. "Not only does it provide Canada's forest industry with privileged access to new knowledge and considerable market potential, but it is also a unique showcase for our organization on the international scene. This memorandum of understanding is bound to be beneficial to everyone."
 
"Our common actions with our Canadian peers date back a long time—to the 1990s, in fact," remarked Georges-Henri Florentin, Executive Director of the FCBA. "Our partnership, signed within COP21's symbolic framework, on topics of global innovations in the field of tall buildings, is intended to spearhead our trades in the forest-wood industry, the 14th strategic sector in France."
 
Facts and figures
 
FCBA covers all forest, pulp and wood industries, including construction and furniture, on French territory. The Institute employs over 350 people spread out in seven centres and working in the following fields: silviculture, paper pulp, logging, sawmilling, framework, carpentry, structure, wood-based panels, furniture, packaging and miscellaneous products.
 
In 2011, FPInnovations published its CLT Handbook, a guide on cross-laminated timber (CLT) that addresses the design, construction and implementation of CLT systems adapted to current standards and codes, and thereby marked the introduction of massive construction in Canada.
 
FPInnovations subsequently published the Technical Guide for the Design and Construction of Tall Wood Buildings in Canada (2014) and the Mid-rise Wood-Frame Construction Handbook (2015), that combine the knowledge of many groups of experts in the organization.

FPInnovations is pleased to announce the success of the first edition of FPInnovates, a conference on innovation and the impact of new technologies that was held to inform, inspire, and change participants' perspectives on innovation and collaboration between the forest industry and other sectors.
 
The one-and-a-half-day event, which opened in Montreal on November 25, attracted 200 delegates from across the country who were all inspired by future change, informed by industry leaders, and educated and energized by innovators.
 
Among those who addressed the conference was futurist and global trends and innovation expert Jim Carroll who inspired and challenged the audience to think passionately about the qualities of world class innovators, and talked about the importance of thinking big and taking chances: some people see a trend or a threat, but world-class innovators see an opportunity.
 
The audience heard from experts in different fields, including a venture capital investor, Wils Theagene, who spoke about financing an innovation and understanding the investor; an authority on international finance and banking, Arvind Jain, who discussed the impact on the forest products industry of contemporary global economic challenges and understanding how the economy works; and a young entrepreneur, Eric Termuende, named one of the top 100 emerging innovators under 35 globally, who highlighted innovation in the workforce: the next generation thrives on innovation, change, and disruptive ideas. The audience also heard the government perspective from Glenn Mason, Assistant Deputy Minister of Natural Resources Canada and the Scandinavian perspective from FPInnovations' Entrepreneur in Residence Lars Sandberg.
 
A panel discussion comprising the movers and shakers of the forest industry discussed important issues ranging from the future of the forest industry, adopting and adapting global paradigms, new applications of wood-fibre-based materials and products, climate change, government policies, creating successful partnerships, and building a resilient culture. Panelists included Kevin Edgson, President and CEO of EACOM Timber Corp.; David Lindsay, President and CEO of the Forest Products Association of Canada; Yvon Pelletier, President of Fortress Paper; Daniel Archambault, Executive Vice President of Kruger; and Mark Feldinger, Vice President of Canfor. FPInnovations' President and CEO Pierre Lapointe served as the moderator.
 
The conference also featured case studies and 50 posters highlighting the latest progress, successes, and technological advances by FPInnovations, university stakeholders, and other innovators.

FPJoule
 
 
Harvest residues are an important source of bioenergy. The interest in this renewable biomass lies in its local availability.
 
Traditionally, wood is assessed on a volume (m³) or weight (odt = oven-dry tonnes, gmt = green-metric tonnes) basis although these units don’t accurately represent the value of biomass when used for energy purposes (kW= kilowatt, MW= megawatt, GJ=Giga joules). The monetary value of the biomass depends partly on its heating value which is the amount of energy that can be obtained when burning. FPJoule is able to calculate the amount of usable energy in the biomass.
 
 
What FPJoule does :
 
  • The Energy cost section determines the amount of energy obtained when burning a given mass of residues of a certain species, type, and moisture content. A conversion tool calculates monetary equivalents (weight, volume or energy).
  • The Economic advantages section calculates annual potential savings by modifying the traditional energy supply for biomass.
  • The Fuel parameters section allows the user to view the different values used in FPJoule. The Reference section lists the information sources used in FPJoule.
  • The Report allows the user to see an overview of the analysis and to print a copy.

 

Inputs: The user can modifiy all the values in FPJoule except calculated results shown in grey.

Optitek
 
 
The Optitek software program is a tool that allows the simulation of any transformation process found in the softwood lumber industry today.
 
Optitek is a mill-wide log breakdown simulator, and it models the processes of converting logs/timber into lumber products in a sawmill, from log bucking and primary breakdown to the trimmer and sorter bins. It can represent, among others, bucking operations, sawing systems (including curve-sawing), edging and trimming operations. Optitek takes into account the equipment parameters, resource characteristics (species, dimensions, shapes) and the lumber products parameters (dimensions, wane rules, value).
 
Once a base case is established for a particular sawmill, it can be used to quantify the impacts of changes (i.e. in log supply, capital investments, lumber prices, new/updated sawing lines, new/additional lumber products) on the recovery of lumber and by-products. It allows sawmill management to predict in advance the expected benefits of proposed investments.
 
Many modification scenarios can be analyzed, including:
 
  • Different bucking strategies
  • Choices of the best sawing patterns
  • Addition of new products
  • Changes of wane rules and price lists in optimizers
  • Installation of optimization equipment
  • Target sizes and saw kerf reduction and much more...

The agreement aims at pooling knowledge, providing access to new markets and launching common projects
 
 
FPInnovations, a Canadian technological research institute and world leader in research and development of scientific solutions for the forest industry, and the Institut Technologique FCBA (Foret Cellulose Bois-construction Ameublement), a technical industrial centre in France, active in the forest/wood/furniture industries, are proud to announce that they have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop research partnerships and a framework for information exchange between their respective organizations.
 
This three-year agreement took effect on November 1 of this year. The initial phases will include increased sharing of experiences, knowledge, resources and best practices and will progress toward developing common research projects. The memorandum of understanding more specifically aims to create synergy between the two institutes, to stimulate open exchanges on mutual development orientations and to establish collaborative projects in the interest of both organizations' members and respective forest industries.
 
Two research topics have been identified to launch this agreement:
 
- Construction of mid-rise and tall wood buildings as well as the building products adapted to such structures;
 
and
 
- End-of-life-management of wood buildings by applying principles of flexibility, deconstruction, reuse, recycling, and life-cycle analysis (LCA) of products.
 
"We are very proud of this agreement, which marks an important step for FPInnovations,"  said Pierre Lapointe, President and CEO of FPInnovations. "Not only does it provide Canada's forest industry with privileged access to new knowledge and considerable market potential, but it is also a unique showcase for our organization on the international scene. This memorandum of understanding is bound to be beneficial to everyone."
 
"Our common actions with our Canadian peers date back a long time—to the 1990s, in fact," remarked Georges-Henri Florentin, Executive Director of the FCBA. "Our partnership, signed within COP21's symbolic framework, on topics of global innovations in the field of tall buildings, is intended to spearhead our trades in the forest-wood industry, the 14th strategic sector in France."
 
Facts and figures
 
FCBA covers all forest, pulp and wood industries, including construction and furniture, on French territory. The Institute employs over 350 people spread out in seven centres and working in the following fields: silviculture, paper pulp, logging, sawmilling, framework, carpentry, structure, wood-based panels, furniture, packaging and miscellaneous products.
 
In 2011, FPInnovations published its CLT Handbook, a guide on cross-laminated timber (CLT) that addresses the design, construction and implementation of CLT systems adapted to current standards and codes, and thereby marked the introduction of massive construction in Canada.
 
FPInnovations subsequently published the Technical Guide for the Design and Construction of Tall Wood Buildings in Canada (2014) and the Mid-rise Wood-Frame Construction Handbook (2015), that combine the knowledge of many groups of experts in the organization.

FPInnovations is pleased to announce the success of the first edition of FPInnovates, a conference on innovation and the impact of new technologies that was held to inform, inspire, and change participants' perspectives on innovation and collaboration between the forest industry and other sectors.
 
The one-and-a-half-day event, which opened in Montreal on November 25, attracted 200 delegates from across the country who were all inspired by future change, informed by industry leaders, and educated and energized by innovators.
 
Among those who addressed the conference was futurist and global trends and innovation expert Jim Carroll who inspired and challenged the audience to think passionately about the qualities of world class innovators, and talked about the importance of thinking big and taking chances: some people see a trend or a threat, but world-class innovators see an opportunity.
 
The audience heard from experts in different fields, including a venture capital investor, Wils Theagene, who spoke about financing an innovation and understanding the investor; an authority on international finance and banking, Arvind Jain, who discussed the impact on the forest products industry of contemporary global economic challenges and understanding how the economy works; and a young entrepreneur, Eric Termuende, named one of the top 100 emerging innovators under 35 globally, who highlighted innovation in the workforce: the next generation thrives on innovation, change, and disruptive ideas. The audience also heard the government perspective from Glenn Mason, Assistant Deputy Minister of Natural Resources Canada and the Scandinavian perspective from FPInnovations' Entrepreneur in Residence Lars Sandberg.
 
A panel discussion comprising the movers and shakers of the forest industry discussed important issues ranging from the future of the forest industry, adopting and adapting global paradigms, new applications of wood-fibre-based materials and products, climate change, government policies, creating successful partnerships, and building a resilient culture. Panelists included Kevin Edgson, President and CEO of EACOM Timber Corp.; David Lindsay, President and CEO of the Forest Products Association of Canada; Yvon Pelletier, President of Fortress Paper; Daniel Archambault, Executive Vice President of Kruger; and Mark Feldinger, Vice President of Canfor. FPInnovations' President and CEO Pierre Lapointe served as the moderator.
 
The conference also featured case studies and 50 posters highlighting the latest progress, successes, and technological advances by FPInnovations, university stakeholders, and other innovators.

FPJoule
 
 
Harvest residues are an important source of bioenergy. The interest in this renewable biomass lies in its local availability.
 
Traditionally, wood is assessed on a volume (m³) or weight (odt = oven-dry tonnes, gmt = green-metric tonnes) basis although these units don’t accurately represent the value of biomass when used for energy purposes (kW= kilowatt, MW= megawatt, GJ=Giga joules). The monetary value of the biomass depends partly on its heating value which is the amount of energy that can be obtained when burning. FPJoule is able to calculate the amount of usable energy in the biomass.
 
 
What FPJoule does :
 
  • The Energy cost section determines the amount of energy obtained when burning a given mass of residues of a certain species, type, and moisture content. A conversion tool calculates monetary equivalents (weight, volume or energy).
  • The Economic advantages section calculates annual potential savings by modifying the traditional energy supply for biomass.
  • The Fuel parameters section allows the user to view the different values used in FPJoule. The Reference section lists the information sources used in FPJoule.
  • The Report allows the user to see an overview of the analysis and to print a copy.

 

Inputs: The user can modifiy all the values in FPJoule except calculated results shown in grey.

Optitek
 
 
The Optitek software program is a tool that allows the simulation of any transformation process found in the softwood lumber industry today.
 
Optitek is a mill-wide log breakdown simulator, and it models the processes of converting logs/timber into lumber products in a sawmill, from log bucking and primary breakdown to the trimmer and sorter bins. It can represent, among others, bucking operations, sawing systems (including curve-sawing), edging and trimming operations. Optitek takes into account the equipment parameters, resource characteristics (species, dimensions, shapes) and the lumber products parameters (dimensions, wane rules, value).
 
Once a base case is established for a particular sawmill, it can be used to quantify the impacts of changes (i.e. in log supply, capital investments, lumber prices, new/updated sawing lines, new/additional lumber products) on the recovery of lumber and by-products. It allows sawmill management to predict in advance the expected benefits of proposed investments.
 
Many modification scenarios can be analyzed, including:
 
  • Different bucking strategies
  • Choices of the best sawing patterns
  • Addition of new products
  • Changes of wane rules and price lists in optimizers
  • Installation of optimization equipment

The agreement aims at pooling knowledge, providing access to new markets and launching common projects
 
 
FPInnovations, a Canadian technological research institute and world leader in research and development of scientific solutions for the forest industry, and the Institut Technologique FCBA (Foret Cellulose Bois-construction Ameublement), a technical industrial centre in France, active in the forest/wood/furniture industries, are proud to announce that they have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop research partnerships and a framework for information exchange between their respective organizations.
 
This three-year agreement took effect on November 1 of this year. The initial phases will include increased sharing of experiences, knowledge, resources and best practices and will progress toward developing common research projects. The memorandum of understanding more specifically aims to create synergy between the two institutes, to stimulate open exchanges on mutual development orientations and to establish collaborative projects in the interest of both organizations' members and respective forest industries.
 
Two research topics have been identified to launch this agreement:
 
- Construction of mid-rise and tall wood buildings as well as the building products adapted to such structures;
 
and
 
- End-of-life-management of wood buildings by applying principles of flexibility, deconstruction, reuse, recycling, and life-cycle analysis (LCA) of products.
 
"We are very proud of this agreement, which marks an important step for FPInnovations,"  said Pierre Lapointe, President and CEO of FPInnovations. "Not only does it provide Canada's forest industry with privileged access to new knowledge and considerable market potential, but it is also a unique showcase for our organization on the international scene. This memorandum of understanding is bound to be beneficial to everyone."
 
"Our common actions with our Canadian peers date back a long time—to the 1990s, in fact," remarked Georges-Henri Florentin, Executive Director of the FCBA. "Our partnership, signed within COP21's symbolic framework, on topics of global innovations in the field of tall buildings, is intended to spearhead our trades in the forest-wood industry, the 14th strategic sector in France."
 
Facts and figures
 
FCBA covers all forest, pulp and wood industries, including construction and furniture, on French territory. The Institute employs over 350 people spread out in seven centres and working in the following fields: silviculture, paper pulp, logging, sawmilling, framework, carpentry, structure, wood-based panels, furniture, packaging and miscellaneous products.
 
In 2011, FPInnovations published its CLT Handbook, a guide on cross-laminated timber (CLT) that addresses the design, construction and implementation of CLT systems adapted to current standards and codes, and thereby marked the introduction of massive construction in Canada.
 
FPInnovations subsequently published the Technical Guide for the Design and Construction of Tall Wood Buildings in Canada (2014) and the Mid-rise Wood-Frame Construction Handbook (2015), that combine the knowledge of many groups of experts in the organization.

FPInnovations is pleased to announce the success of the first edition of FPInnovates, a conference on innovation and the impact of new technologies that was held to inform, inspire, and change participants' perspectives on innovation and collaboration between the forest industry and other sectors.
 
The one-and-a-half-day event, which opened in Montreal on November 25, attracted 200 delegates from across the country who were all inspired by future change, informed by industry leaders, and educated and energized by innovators.
 
Among those who addressed the conference was futurist and global trends and innovation expert Jim Carroll who inspired and challenged the audience to think passionately about the qualities of world class innovators, and talked about the importance of thinking big and taking chances: some people see a trend or a threat, but world-class innovators see an opportunity.
 
The audience heard from experts in different fields, including a venture capital investor, Wils Theagene, who spoke about financing an innovation and understanding the investor; an authority on international finance and banking, Arvind Jain, who discussed the impact on the forest products industry of contemporary global economic challenges and understanding how the economy works; and a young entrepreneur, Eric Termuende, named one of the top 100 emerging innovators under 35 globally, who highlighted innovation in the workforce: the next generation thrives on innovation, change, and disruptive ideas. The audience also heard the government perspective from Glenn Mason, Assistant Deputy Minister of Natural Resources Canada and the Scandinavian perspective from FPInnovations' Entrepreneur in Residence Lars Sandberg.
 
A panel discussion comprising the movers and shakers of the forest industry discussed important issues ranging from the future of the forest industry, adopting and adapting global paradigms, new applications of wood-fibre-based materials and products, climate change, government policies, creating successful partnerships, and building a resilient culture. Panelists included Kevin Edgson, President and CEO of EACOM Timber Corp.; David Lindsay, President and CEO of the Forest Products Association of Canada; Yvon Pelletier, President of Fortress Paper; Daniel Archambault, Executive Vice President of Kruger; and Mark Feldinger, Vice President of Canfor. FPInnovations' President and CEO Pierre Lapointe served as the moderator.
 
The conference also featured case studies and 50 posters highlighting the latest progress, successes, and technological advances by FPInnovations, university stakeholders, and other innovators.

"FPInnovations is proud to have assembled the leading players and thinkers in innovation and at the same time presented the most recent technological advances in the forest industry. This unique, engaging, and thought-provoking event has encouraged participants to think outside the box and to view the innovation process as a solution to the challenges they are facing. Feedback from the audience has been overwhelmingly positive and we are very pleased that FPInnovates has inspired and kindled new ways of thinking about the future of the forest sector."
