Walter Thomas (Judd) Groat was a noted guide, outfitter and horseman in the Edson-Jasper area of western Alberta. He lived in Brule with his wife Darleen, raising nine children. His parents, Thomas and Clarice, lived on Montana Pete's homestead at Entrance at the time he was born on April 1, 1913. They moved into Brule about 1917 when he was four years old. Thomas was also a guide and outfitter, and Judd made his first long fall hunting trip with his father in the fall of 1928 when he was just 15. Judd appears to have never looked back from that experience, excelling in his own right.
This interview was conducted on August 12, 1998, just over four months before Judd passed away on January 3, 1999. We had hoped to review the typewritten draft with him to make sure we had transcribed it correctly, and were saddened to learn that this was no longer possible. I will consult with members of his family to ensure that the text is as correct as possible, while maintaining the integrity of Judd's original responses.Peter J. Murphy About the Forest History Program Interview Series
Between 1997 and 2000, the Forest History Program conducted 33 interviews with various people who played important roles in, or were connected otherwise with the development of the remarkable forest management operation at the Hinton Forest of Weldwood of Canada. These were background information that would be used in a series of books and reports that would follow, all initiated by one book project linked to Weldwood’s 40th anniversary celebrations in Hinton in 1997. Some of these interviews are posted to the fRI Research website for general reading, others are available only with permission for research purposes. All interviews were professionally edited to retain content but improve clarity.
The first two Steel Yankee Dryers ofthe largest diameter ever built have left the dockand this is further proof of Toscotec's leadership in the design and manufacturing of the main component of the tissue drying section. The TT SYD-22FT is at the heart of Toscotec PRODERGY tissue machine, which is equipped with a Steam Hood to achieve the maximum operating speed of 2000 mpm.
This extraordinary achievement is the result of Toscotec’s investment strategy, aimed to enhance its strength in the tissue and paper industry with the opening of a new technology center dedicated to the complete production cycle of TT SYDs.
From metalworking and precision mechanical processing to thermal treatment in a 10m x 10m oven, all the tests and certifications are made on site, according to Functional European (PED), American (ASME), Chinese (CSEI) and Japanese (JIS) regulations. The new center also houses technical and production offices, as well as a conference room and a customer lounge.
The facility is located in Massa, at 50 km from Lucca, a location chosen for easy and fast access to seaport overseas shipments.
Glassine papers are coated with a thin layer of silicone to serve as release carriers of PSA labels through printing cutting and application to a wide range of consumer and industrial products. In 2016, third party analysis commissioned by Munksjö had proven biodegradability of the material according to EN 14046:2003, which represents one pre-requisite for compostability. In order to be compostable according to EN13432 standard, the material should additionally meet criteria of chemical composition, physical disintegration, quality of the final compost produced, and eco-toxicity. All conditions were met by the samples of silicone coated release paper.
“Recycling always represents a preferred end-of-life option, and surveys report that paper recycling rates in Europe are the highest among various materials, even in the specific field of release liners. Those tests prove that - even after silicone coating performed by our customer industries - paper release liners remain both biodegradable and compostable as the paper substrate they are based on. As a consequence, the environmental impact of residual paper release liner waste, eventually not recycled at the end of its life-cycle, will be lower than other materials based on non-renewable resources. Moreover, these features could also open recycling opportunities in new applications beyond those in use today” comments Marco Martinez, Product and Sustainability Manager, Release Liners.
The analysis was performed on Munksjö’s 58 g/m  glassine paper, coated on one side with approximately 1 g/m  of silicone, which represent common conditions for release liners used as carriers of PSA labels. Samples were first tested according to EN 14046:2003, which specifies a method for the evaluation of the ultimate aerobic biodegradability of packaging materials based on organic compounds over a period of 180 days. Following to that, the samples did undergo a 12 week analysis to assess physical disintegration, quality of the final compost produced, and eco-toxicity as prescribed by EN13432 standard.
The study was performed by Ecol Studio, an environmental analyses laboratory accredited by Italy’s National Accreditation Body Accredia, in compliance with ISO 17025:2005 standards and EN 45000 European norms.
Munksjö Release Liners Business Area, one of Munksjö’s four business areas, is a global leading supplier of release papers for the PSA industry, with manufacturing sites in Europe and South America. All of them are certified according to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004, OHSAS 18001:2007, FSC [® ] and PEFC [™] Chain-of-Custody.

Presentation by Terry Sunderland, Principal Scientist & Team Leader, Sustainable Landscapes and Food Systems, Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) at the CGIAR-CBD Linkages Side Event Cancun, 8th December 2016 CIFOR/FTA and the CBD from Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR)
By Sven Wunder and Jan Börner, originally posted at CIFOR’s Forests News Numerous types of forest conservation policies are being implemented in the tropics today. Alongside traditional instruments like protected areas, other initiatives including development programs, certification schemes and payments for environmental services (PES) are also being carried out. Yet rigorously-quantified knowledge about what works and what does not work […]

Products from forests in Viet Nam aren’t well developed. Nor has their potential to help fight climate change been fully realized. Now researchers and government are working together to change this. The high value of non-timber forest products is no secret to Viet Nam. For millions of people who live in mountain communities, especially members of the many ethnic minorities, […]
