A value-chain approach - Forest-based Sector Technology Platform FTP

  1. 1. A value-chain approach The Forest-based Sector Technology Platform FTP Johan Elvnert, Managing Director the Forest-based Sector ETP (FTP) 1 December 2016, Brussels 4th annual High Level Conference of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Raw Materials Session 4 Competitiveness and Innovation
  2. 2. Advanced Forest-based products • Paper-based electronics • Nanocellulose • Carbon fibres, Graphene, • nano-foams, composites Textiles from European Forests • Forest, Fuel, Freight Advanced wood construction Fish feed (single-cell protein from cellulosic waste) Packaging and paper
  3. 3. How is the collaboration organised? EFI 4 European Confederations covering Woodworking Industries Pulp & Paper Industries Private Forest Owners State Forests 3 Research Umbrella Organisations FTP Management 25 National Stakeholder Platforms SME Associations, National Federations, Companies, Forest owners, Funding Agencies, Researchers Advisory Committee (Chairs of the National Support Groups) FTP Board Supporting Large Companies FTP Owners CEPI, CEI-Bois, CEPF, EUSTAFOR
  4. 4. FTP National Support Groups FTP NSGs FTP NSGs (less active)
  5. 5. Vision for 2030 and 10 Vision Targets Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda 2020 (SRA) • 19 Research & Innovation Areas • 174 R&I Actions to undertake until 2020 FTP Vision and SRA for 2020
  6. 6. FTP Vision Target #2 • “…. Bearing in mind the full range of demand and production constraints*, harvesting possibilities in Europe have increased by 30% (until 2030), enabling forest owners to manage their forests more efficiently and sustainably. “ * In many regions specific forest growth is increasing and management is optimised for additional harvesting possibilities. In other regions, especially in the Mediterranean area, where the impact of climate change is predicted to be severe, creating resilient, stress-tolerant forest is particularly important. In some landscapes the main aim is nature conservation and providing ecosystem services.
  7. 7. Benefits for society? But if the timber is utilised by the forest-based industries*: +75 bn Euro in value * These figures are calculated using theoretical values and trade statistics. Precision is not guaranteed +120 Million m3 timber harvested each year + 5 bn Euro value for forest owners* Or alternatively*: + 24 Mtoe = 20 days of EU:s total petroleum products consumption + ca 20 bn Euro value
  8. 8. Annual production of roundwood, EU28 circa 650 m3 below bark
  9. 9. Example practical problem: Soil damage from forestry operations • Big problem for forest owners today (sustainability) • Proposed solution exists • Misguided environmental concern is perhaps main obstacle (fear that solution opens up for ”intensification” of forestry operations) Copyright: J. Elvnert
