Digital evaluation of the wood at the factory entrance


This project will test and promote the adoption of innovative technologies to automate the reception and evaluation processes of forest raw materials in forest-based industries.

In this way, efficiency gains will be achieved in operations and a better understanding and management of the raw materials. Additionally, a digital evaluation and an automatic characterization of the wood and biomass at the mills gate will generate information that will contribute to greater transparency and collaboration between buyers, suppliers and forest producers.
