Introducing the Ontario East Wood Centre

A Profitable Union of Industry, Research, Government

Environmental insight The Ontario East Wood Centre has been designed to help businesses employ environmentally and economically sound practices as they manufacture value-added wood products. Businesses will work together here, to develop mutually beneficial processes and products with the support of research and government organizations.

The opportunity A company involved in manufacturing value-added wood products will locate here for good reasons: • A stable business environment, thanks to the strength of a shared guiding vision and an integrated research focus

Value-added wood products Processing makes wood products about six times as valuable, on average. Value-added wood products include furniture and boards—and also foods, health products and bio-products. Some 59,000 people work in Ontario’s value-added wood industry.

Mutually beneficial processes, products Wood processing by-products can be used to generate energy. Energy and other wood processing outputs feed biorefining. Biorefining creates materials for use in chemicals, bioplastics, building materials, auto parts and pilot plants. By-products can feed processing and biorefining.
