Safe Technologies IG took part in the annual conference VNIIDREV
Safe Technologies IG took part in the conference named Present state and Future of the wood board production. Usually, this event takes place at the Scientific Research Institute VNIIDREV in Obninsk city.
The conference was dedicated to the issues of interaction between science and production according to the new technical regulations on environmental safety of the timberware. These rules tighten formaldehyde emission requirements from wood boards used in furniture production and in construction. The transitional period to the new technologies expired on March 1, 2016. Still many wood industry companies failed to adjust to new type of production or just plainly ignored these new regulations.
During the conference, Deputy Commerce Director of Safe Technologies IG Mr. Grauman reported about proprietary UFC/formaldehyde and resin technology, which proved capable to provide painless transition lower emission boards. Furthermore, he stressed that due to the low price of the ruble and possible prolongation or strengthening of the economic sanctions it is reasonable to turn to Russian the company for such technology.
