Report on extractive content of Scottish roundwood

Steven Adams conducted a review of what has been published so far on extractive content of the main commercial softwood species in Scotland (namely Sitka spruce, Scots pine, lodgepole pine, larch and Norway spruce).  The purpose is to look at potential for adding value to biorefining through pre-processing to obtain extractives for marketable products.

You can obtain a copy of the report from Edinburgh Napier University’s research repository.

The work was funded by Forestry Commission Scotland through IBioIC (The Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre)
