Wood as a raw material

New Biobase factsheet on wood-based bioeconomy & multifunctionality of forests

Wood is one of the most important renewable resources when it comes to the transformation from a fossil-based to a bio-based economy. In addition to economic use, however, the forest also has other functions to fulfil, some of which conflict with each other. Targeted, objective management can help resolve these conflicts. In our latest factsheet, we take a closer look at the multifunctionality of the forest, the resulting conflicts of objectives and possible solutions.
