Tomsk region to create a new economic and technology platform for forest management

17 August 2017 14:38

During the meeting of Vladimir Dmitriyev, Head of Department of Science and Prospective Development of the Federal Forestry Agency with the project office of INO Tomsk, universities and departments of Tomsk Region Administration and participants in the implementation of the road map of this interdisciplinary project, scenarios for intensive development and technology development of the industry were discussed.

Opening the meeting, Vladimir Dmitriyev noted that an important event pertaining to forest management is taking place at the federal level – by the end of the year the Timber complex development strategy is expected to be developed. “Its core idea is to change the current principles of forest management and use”, Mr. Dmitriyev said. Another important direction is training of specialists, specifically interaction with school forestry units. According to the head of FFA, the Government instruction to develop a roadmap for development of school forestry units is currently being worked out.

According to Mr. Dmitriyev, the Tomsk region is of high interest for FFA. Taking into account the long history if innovation support, the region has all that it takes to participate in the development of new scenarios for forest management that would be base on maximum economic output, transition from low margin stages to high value added products and promising technology. European countries, Germany in particular, already have long-term experience in implementing such scenario for development of the industry, they have identified and calculated all the value chains, the new economic model was developed and the expertise in the industry and science was directed towards the final high-margin product.

The basis for the solution of the new problem shall be the Cluster of renewable natural resources that was established in May 2015 in cooperation with the Ministry of Natural Resources, FFA and the Federal Agency for Fishery. The main objective of the cluster is to develop technology for deep processing of natural resources, cooperations between companies and universities to reduce the costs and enter new market segments domestically and abroad. The participants of the meeting brought an example of this project’s work, it is the initiative proposed by the company called Solagift. Results of research in the quality of raw fir-needles have shown that the most biologically active are fir and silver fir needles. Solagift has launched its production based on the processing of fir-needles; the company is now present on the foreign markets and serves as an example of the new economy in forest industry.

Several issues have been discussed at the meeting: forest management fieldwork, creation of a geoinformation system to assess renewable resources and forecast the yield, possible activities in ecological climatology and other acute issues related to forest management.
