Particle boards are made of wood fiber and composed of varied granulometry particles, mixed with binding materials and then pressed to produce the boards.
Short rotation forestry (SRF) is the quickest system (2 years) for the supply of large volumes of material for the production of particle boards. Through less dense and longer-cutting cycle plantations (5 years), medium rotation forestry (MRF), it is possible to obtain suitable materials for the production of particle boards without bark, therefore whiter in colour and lighter in weight. Tables 1 and 2 show the clones that are currently available at our headquarters, suitable for the production of particle boards with and without bark (AF2, AF3, AF13, AF16, AF18, AF24, AF28), as well as the country where their cultivation is feasible.
We are currently able to produce from 250,000 to 400,000 tons of base material for each establishment; such amount can be increased upon request.
