MySustainableForest in LIGNA’s wood industry summit

From 27th to 31st May, a new edition of the wood industry summit LIGNA will present in Hanover the complete range of the highly innovative sector of the wood processing and transformation industry. Under the motto Making more out of Wood, the latest inspection systems and new intelligent technologies applicable to this industry will be presented, among others.

My Sustainable Forest project will be located at booth H28/7, where it will present its novelties and applications for forest management using satellite technology and earth observation data, will offer personalised demonstrations and will attend all those who come to request more detailed information about our products.

The event will be attended by the leader of the MySustainableForest project, the Spanish company GMV, together with our partner Madera Plus, who will be in charge of reporting on the project, one of the most ambitious in Europe for the future of forestry.

Participants at the Hanover fair will be able to discover the services offered by the project and the latest progress of the initiative, which aims to integrate earth observation technology and tools into forest management, with the aim of promoting a more sustainable use. Biomass evaluation, preparation of wood quality maps, development of a strategy against climate change and detection of vulnerabilities are some of the applications developed during the evolution of this research project.

Among the conferences of the event will be a talk on Thursday 30 entitled Satellite data for forest damage assessment as part of the session “Protection of precious natural resources against biotic and abiotic damage” which will be conducted by GMV’s Earth Observation Engineer, Elsa Carla de Grandi.
