Summary

Final report for project FST/2008/039 Enhancement of veneer products from acacia and eucalypt plantations in Vietnam and Australia

The aim of the project was to promote higher value utilisation of Vietnam’s acacia and eucalypt plantations by optimising veneer production from this resource, leading to higher returns to smallholder farmers. The project also examined veneer production from selected species in Australia as a parallel technological improvement and innovation work on wood based composite processes and engineered wood products (EWPs) which can be transferred in Vietnam.
