Concerning the use of solid wood the need for making higher quality available is becoming increasingly obvious while prospects for inferior quality are considered poor. The future looks bright for domestic coniferous and in particular for high quality non-coniferous roundwood. The classification of wood dust from beech and oak as cancerogenous materials may have an adverse effect on the use of these wood species for particleboard and perhaps also for other uses. New board types have been developed from wood based materials which compete with particleboard as well as with sawn wood. New processes are being developed which use industrial roundwood with small diameters and industrial wood residues for chips, pulp and paper. These processes tend to be more flexible than established ones with regard to the use of a greater variety of wood species, qualities and dimensions, including also hardwood and bark. For pulp production they may even reduce our present dependence on sulfate pulp imports.
