The goal of the Forest Products Consortium Team is the education of researchers for forest products. This team consists of 3 sections: ‘Research group of wood chemistry and chemical processing’, ‘Research group of wood physics and timber engineering’, and ‘Research group of paper science and papermaking technology’. 6 professors and 40 graduated students in the program of Environmental Materials Science, Department of Forest Science, Seoul National University are participating in cooperation with 5 private companies.
This team has researched high value-added business and environmental materials in order to create a synergy effect through establishment of a broad research field such as the construction industry, bio and energy industry, electric and electronic industry, environmental industry with conventional forest products industry and improving research power.
Graduates who take part in this project will be able to upgrade quality of research by participating international academic societies in many countries.
