VANCOUVER, BC, June 29, 2011 (Vancouver Sun) -Buoyed by near-record pulp prices, the Canadian forest industry has embarked on a research-and-development program that is being described as second to none in Canada.

The Canadian forestry sector has built and is now implementing a strong innovation strategy that includes developing new bioproducts from pulp, said Jim Dangerfield, president of the cooperative forest research group FP Innovations.

Dangerfield said in an interview that 12 major forest products research programs are underway valued at $110 million. Much of the money is going into pulp research.
