Technologies for sustainable products and services, environment and forests
IPT develops studies and technical reports for forestry projects and environmental sustainability, such as the adaptation of products and processes to the principles of sustainability, as well as planning and dimensioning forest exploitation, including high value-added products such as building lumber, fibers and raw materials for energy. IPT also carries out studies on processes for carbon capture and sequestration by forests, as well as research on wood-based products and their rational use.
The knowledge on environmental sustainability that IPT has accumulated over the past decades allows for the adequate use of wood species while preserving ecosystems, avoiding waste and including the use of alternative species in order to diminish pressure on traditional species under threat of extinction.
