for the past 10 years we have been developing Near Infra Red spectroscopic models to predict kraft pulp yield in small eucalypt wood samples... in an affordable manner.
Forest Quality's mission: to assist commercial forest growers to produce more valuable trees at a lower cost.
Commercial wood production requires growing the greatest volume of the most valuable wood for the lowest cost in the shortest time. For most growers this is targeted on volume. We want to help this development to include key commercially important wood properties, such as wood density, stiffness, pulp yield and dry matter content.
We specialise in robust NIR specctroscopic calibrations for the prediction of Kraft pulp yield, cellulose content and chip basic density using high-resolution laboratory instruments. While current analysis costs for these properties are much lower than other, more traditional techniques, we are working on a range of next-generation NIR techniques that should improve their cost-effectiveness. Eventually, utilising new low-cost portable NIR spectrometers, we hope to be able to support customers who want to develop their own in-house analytical capability.
Based in Franklin in southern Tasmania, Australia we work with commercial and research partners around the world. We can
