Hardwood Initiative - Part 5: Development of new processes and technologies in the hardwood industry - Identification of profitable continuous radio frequency drying applications for the hardwood industry
Transformative Technologies Program ; Project No. TT5.15
This project was undertaken as part of the research initiative designed to enhance the competitiveness of hardwood industry in eastern Canada. Project funding was provided through Natural Resources Canada's Transformative Technologies Program.
The objective was to determine, in consultation with manufacturers of hardwood products, which continuous radio frequency drying applications warrant additional investigation to further the development of this technology. The project was designed to shed light on various technical and economic considerations (electrode length, acquisition cost estimate, energy costs, etc.) for various potential applications.
