Dear friends and B.Forest readers,

Dear friends and B.Forest readers,

The new decade has already begun and Brazil’s forestry and timber sectors have been alert to any important development in the global market. As ABIMCI warns the industry, the international market for wood products, as is the case in other sectors, is facing some market uncertainties due to the ongoing trade war between the United States and China. In this scenario, it is essential for Brazil to keep focused on our main competitive advantages while also developing new commercial opportunities.
The challenges of the new decade are the theme of our main articles this month. The first is about the possibilities for forestry startups today, while the second goes into detail on the current technological and commercial status of the market for eucalyptus vegetable coal. We also present Klabin’s new Technical Schools, a trend for a sector in great need of a qualified workforce, and we launch our new Forestry Bioeconomy column, which will discuss the potential of different bioproducts such as lignin and microfibrillated cellulose.
Our first guest of the year is Erich Schaitza, new chief director of Embrapa Florestas. With great experience in forestry research, the professional discusses the synergy between the private sector and research institutions, as well as the future of forestry sciences. Don’t miss it!

Ricardo Malinovski
CEO
