WTT at WPA Annual Event

16/04-2018

Peter Klaas and Thomas Mark Venås were invited to the 4th WPA Annual Meeting to give a talk on wood treatment trends.The meeting was held on April 12th at Bredsall Priory, Derby, and was attended by more than 80 delegates.

Peter focused his talk on three mega trends that are of great importance to our industry: consolidation, sustainability, and convenience. These mega trends lead WTT and its clients towards bigger projects where environmental impact, automation, and new, value added products are key.

Thomas gave an example of this with the hot-oil drying method which not only leads to superior product performance, but also a big reduction in biocide emissions. The presentation also gave examples on themes of automation where production on a single autoclave of medium size can go up to 100.000 m3 per year with only one operator.

The audience was highly involved and indicated that WTT is on the right path towards “Making the Most of Wood”.
