National Innovation Alliance of Formaldehyde-free Wood-based Panels
“The establishment of the national innovation alliance of aldehyde-free wood-based panels marks that the development of China’s aldehyde-free wood-based panels industry has entered a new stage.” Shi Feng, secretary-general of China Forestry Industry Association, said that formaldehyde-free wood-based panels, as a high-end product of wood-based panels, have broad application prospects in children’s furniture, indoor decoration and special areas sensitive to the environment because of their excellent environmental protection performance, such as no formaldehyde addition and low free formaldehyde emission. “The National Innovation Alliance of formaldehyde-free wood-based panels will fully integrate the resources of all sectors of society, work together, strengthen the research and development and innovation of the whole industry chain of formaldehyde-free wood-based panels, and make important contributions to the further development of formaldehyde-free wood-based panels industry.” Shi Feng said.
Li Junfeng, Vice Mayor of Dongying Municipal People’s Government, said that the establishment of innovation alliance will play an important role in promoting the quality of products in formaldehyde-free industries and promoting the transformation and upgrading of Dongying’s economic structure. Dongying will take this opportunity to continuously optimize the business environment, strengthen the driving force of scientific and technological innovation, and accelerate the cultivation and growth of wood with high technology content, high added value and high resource utilization rate. Processing enterprises should promote the upgrading of forest industry, form industrial clusters, and make every effort to build forest production and processing bases with important influence in the country.
Forestry industry is a green industry and carbon sink industry. It is the largest green economy. China has become the fastest developing country of forestry industry in the world and the largest country in the production, trade and consumption of forest products in the world. The rapid development of China’s forestry industry has made great contributions to over 700 million rural people getting rid of poverty and becoming rich, and has made the most vivid interpretation of “Green Water and Green Mountain is Jinshan and Yinshan”.
“Our country has entered a new era of socialist development with Chinese characteristics. The main contradiction of forestry in our country has been transformed into the contradiction between the growing demand and insufficient supply of green ecological products and the imbalance of supply among the people.” Shifeng believed that the increasing demand for better ecological products in the future posed new opportunities and challenges for China’s forestry development. Forest products are an important grasp to meet the people’s demand for better ecological products. The more urgent the people’s demand for better ecological products, the more vigorous the demand for ecological forest products in China.
In recent years, the industry of formaldehyde-free wood-based panels and their products has become a sunrise industry of environmental protection, with constant hot spots and bright spots, technology maturing and new products emerging. Especially with the increasing awareness of safety and environmental protection, the research and development, application and promotion of aldehyde-free products will greatly enrich the connotation of manufacturing industry and meet the people’s yearning for a better life.
