Abstract

Introduction The wood products industry is virtually dependent upon adhesives to utilize smaller trees, as well as forest and mill residues, in order to produce various products to meet the needs of consumers. As the quality of harvested timber declines, the future of wood utilization will require an even higher dependence upon adhesives to convert the limited timber resources into needed products. Presently, the wood products industry is almost entirely dependent on chemicals derived from petroleum and natural gas for adhesives. The 1991 hostilities in the Persian Gulf and the resulting petroleum price escalation are compelling reminders of the difficulties the forest products industry encountered during the energy crisis of the 1970's. Therefore, efforts to develop renewable sources of chemical raw materials and energy must be accelerated. The photosynthetic products of green plants, biomass, in its various forms,'represents one of the truly renewable resources upon which the planet earth can and must build upon in order to ensure a sustainable future. 1 The research was cooperation of School of Forest Resource, the University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia, U.S·. A. and Department of Forestry, National Chung-Hsing University Taiwan. The work was carried out in Department of Forestry, National Chung-Hsing
