Protecting wood without solvent emissions
logs-pic-2 NEW TREATMENT FOR LOGS
A new process to treat timber so that it lasts longer has
been developed. Unlike the current Light Organic Solvent
Preservative (LOSP) process, the new process doesn’t release
organic solvents into the atmosphere. This new process is an
alternative to the current LOSP process widely used in Australia
to reduce rot and breakdown in timber.

New life for African mahogany
tree3
African mahogany is a high-value hardwood timber species
with great potential for forest plantations in northern Australia.
A genetic program is underway to provide quality control in the
growth of this species. This will result in fast growing trees with
good form for logging and ultimately high value use.
