China and northern bleached softwood kraft pulp

A. Wong, Arbokem Inc., Vancouver, Canada

ABSTRACT. Most of China’ pulp import are of the Northern Beached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) type. In the 1980’s, it had routinely imported about 700,000 tonnes of NBSK for its rapidly expanding domestic paper and paperboard industry. The main factors affecting the future of NBSK sales to China include: a) resource limitations, b) internal trade structure, c) economic events and d) political events. (AK7040)

Some problems of technology development for the small innovators

Al Wong, Arbokem Inc., Vancouver, Canada

ABSTRACT. Many of the fundamental problems encountered by the small innovators (including independent inventors and small technology development companies) are related to the lack of funds for continued research and development. The situation is particularly acute at the technology demonstration stage. There are significant deficiencies in the present means of funding research and development, and eventual commercial implementation of new technologies, for the small innovators. (AK7358)

Forest resources of Indonesia

Alfred Wong, Arbokem Inc., Vancouver Canada

ABSTRACT. Indonesia is a large country with immense forest resources. With an aggressive national policy of banning export of logs and sawn timber, the Indonesian Government has created significant industries for the manufacture of plywood and other value-added wood products, within a decade. Because of the remoteness of forest concessions, good logging practice is difficult to enforce. Reforestation plan is ambitious. But it is very doubtful if the goal of 4.4 million hectares planted could be reached by 2000. The basic challenges facing Indonesia in forest resource management for pulp and paper industry development would include improvements in: a) utilization of considerable amount of existing logging wastes, b) reforestation program, with better coordination of sawed logs and pulp wood production, and c) infrastructure for establishing pulp and paper industries in the Outer Islands.
