Designers and regulators are increasingly rationalizing for climate change (CC) in stream crossing designs. Accounting for CC when rationalizing design floods in small and remote watersheds is an especially difficult task, in part due to lacking historic data that can inform future projections.

Montreal, January 15, 2020FPInnovations is pleased to announce that its cellulose filament production technology will once again be brought to a commercial scale following Resolute Forest Products‘ announcement of a $27.7 million investment in its Kénogami plant in Quebec.

Montreal, Quebec – December 18, 2019 Lim Geomatics, a software and consulting company that leverages innovative technology to create geospatial products and services in the natural resources sector, and FPInnovations, a non-profit organization that specializes in the creation of solutions that support the Canadian forest sector’s global competitiveness, have developed a strategic partnership to continue blazing an exciting digital trail for the forest industry.

A few years ago, FPInnovations undertook a research project to facilitate the automated separation of wood species. The project, which initially targeted the pulp and paper sector, gradually turned into an advanced vision tool for the development of real-time adaptive control technologies applicable to sawmills. 

Let’s face it, convenience is king. We’re more likely to recycle and compost if we have curbside service and if we forget our reusable grocery bags at home, we can buy more at the checkout counter. 

Machine operators have a huge impact on fuel efficiency and productivity. The difference in productivity between the worst and best operators can be as much as 30%, while proper maintenance of a machine can result in significant fuel savings. To help its members increase their productivity, FPInnovations offers Smart Operator for Forestry workshops across Canada.

Scientists in FPInnovations’ wildfire operations research and fibre-supply are combining their expertise in a joint research project with the city of Quesnel, B.C., funded in part by the Forest Enhancement Society of British Columbia, to better understand how harvesting techniques can reduce hazardous vegetative fuel to lower the threat of catastrophic wildfires near urban areas while preserving a forest’s ecosystem.

BioDesign, a consortium of companies, associations, academic and research institutions from several sectors (including FPInnovations), is formed around a collective mission from the public and private sectors to make Canada a low-carbon industrial bioeconomy leader.
