Title: Streamlining of forest flow for lasting and long-term bio-based economy
Biography: Matts Lilja
A bio-based economy not only offers great opportunities to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. It also offers opportunities to increase the proportion of renewable energy, create green jobs and strengthen the world's forestry's competitiveness and export. Bioeconomy is a key to sustainable, low carbon and circular economies in line with the EU climate goals and Agenda 2030. North America and the Nordic region, with its long-term sustainable forestry, contribute strongly to the global bioeconomy and are good role models for other forestry countries to invent and establish long-term care plans, where the possibility of an increased withdrawal of total biomass will be one of the good consequences. A long-term forest management plan increases the overall forest volume in each country and also enables the disposal of valuable biotopes with high nature conservation values. The withdrawal from the forest will never be bigger than growth every year. With this as a starting point, we lock in carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in environmentally-friendly buildings, furniture, and constructions of wood and creates forests that increase in the long term both in terms of volume and importance in order to curb climate change.
Tracy of Sweden® offers the market a sharp tool for planned and controllable withdrawal of biomass, which creates the conditions for an efficient and balanced bio-based economy. It identifies and traces the origin of each log and digitizes the entire forest flow from stump to the consumer. Image analysis is done by each end area of logs and pulp bits and links individual log to the coordinates where the tree stood. With advanced patented cloud-based image recognition methodology can the individual log be recognized at any time (e.g. on truck, sawmill, port or customs). The system is global and built together with IBM.
Tracy man® the product for manual registration when cutting with a chainsaw.
Tracy aut® the product for registration directly on the harvester. The method makes the logs to unique individuals. If you want to add more information such as species, length, diameter, and quality, it will be fully possible within a year. Tracy man® already has that feature.
Some countries are struggling with problems such as illegal felling and/or stolen timber. Tracy of Sweden makes a big difference by identifying and registering the origin of all legal felling and "unlabeled" wood thus becomes automatically illegal. Tracy of Sweden can guarantee the origin of the requirements that the EU Timber Regulation, FSC or PEFC has on traceability is met. Tracy of Sweden more or less affects all UN sustainability goals (www.svenskskogsdata.com). Svensk Skogsdata AB is changing its name to Tracy of Sweden for the global launch of our products.
