Another company is Paneles Arauco S.A., with which UDT has developed a technology for the extraction of polyphenols present in pine bark. The technological package includes the conceptual and basic engineering of the first industrial plant of pine bark extract in the world. The natural polyphenols obtained from this process are of particular interest to the plywood panel industry, as they allow the total or partial replacement of phenol, oil product, in adhesive resins. The new natural product provides similar mechanical properties to the panels; however, its cost and environmental impacts are lower.
The fair will be held at the Universidad de Concepción, in the hallway leading to System Engineering at the side of Plaza del Estudiante, and will be open between 9 am and 6 pm.
