Technology in the forest – the supply chain data blind spot

Posted on 05/11/2013 by 53

Increasing pressure is being exerted on the timber sector to improve accountability and compliance. This situation is due to the recent introduction of strict import regulations in the USA, Europe and Australia, most notably the Lacey Act, EU TR and the Illegal Logging Prohibition Bill.

Although member states had just over two years to put the legislation into effect, progress has been slower than hoped, and there is still a long way to go.

However, the fundamental principles of the EUTR should not be forgotten: it is still vitally important, both for the environment and for business security that we are able to establish sustainable, transparent timber supply chains, and Helveta believes that this can be achieved quickly and simply.

So what is all the fuss about and what are the real problems that need to be solved for this feedstock to become a vibrant force in the Biofuels arena?
