AU04 Valorisation of Wood Pulp Side Streams

Have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. Eight case studies can also be reviewed.

Objective

The objective of this study was to assist our client in understanding the market potential for co-products valorised from woodchip squeezings and bark.

Method

This report is relatively brief and focuses on prioritising which of the compounds of interest may be commercially feasible to produce and warrant further investigation.
In order to assess which products are likely to be of most interest to our client, CPL has ranked these using a Non-parametric Analysis Model which can be found on Page 6 of this report.
The ranking has used a number of criteria and scored according to CPL’s research and judgement. The criteria include market size, growth, competition, time to market, cost to market and overall likelihood of commercial success. The criteria have been weighted according to their relative importance.
