Formaldehyde emissions sees a breakthrough

At a press conference arranged by the China High-Tech Industrialization Association, a key technology for formaldehyde free plywood production was introduced.

The application of this technology reduces formaldehyde emissions to only 0.015mg/L which is 1% of national E1 standard for plywood.

The Scientific and Technological Achievements Evaluation Committee within the China High-Tech Industrialization Association stated that no other formaldehyde adhesive has attained this level of emission elimination.

According to the National Planning Report during the 13th Five Year Plan (2016 to 2021) it is forecast that national wood-based panel production will stabilise at between 260-280 million cubic metres.
