- Feira de Transformação, Beneficiamento, Biomassa, Energia e Uso da Madeira
Brazil brings in its history a strong link with the production and transformation of wood. From a rudimentary exploration process, the industry has evolved, and today the country is a world leader in the productivity of planted forests, adopting high-tech production and harvesting practices. As a result, various wood use and processing activities have also evolved, especially lumber, plywood and reconstituted panels of pine and eucalyptus. Lignum Brazil Fair was the result of the perception of this reality.
In the search for the best name for the trade fair that will represent the wood industry in Brazil; we chose one that represents the essence of wood: Lignum, Latin word meaning lignin, which is the molecule associated with cellulose that gives hardness, waterproofness and beauty to wood.
In addition to this strong name, from the beginning we have the support of the main trade associations and the reliability provided by an Advisory Council, composed by the companies: Maclinea, Metalúrgica Turbina, Mill Indústrias and SCM Tecmatic. Together, we see the potential of the wood industry and bet on qualification, search for technology and the modernization of primary transformation, processing, preservation, energy and use of wood.
Lignum Brazil will be held every two years, following the trend of market launches. The first edition was held on March 09 to 11, 2016 at Expo Renault Barigui in Curitiba (PR). The second edition will happen from September 20th to 22th, in 2017.
A country with wood producton in its essence deserves a national-scale fair which properly represents the strength of its productive processes.
