GIZ. 2016. Study to minimise the abrasion caused by sand and minerals from harvested encroacher bush biomass with possible alternative technologies and improvements for manufacturing a selection of compressed wood products in Namibia - Milestone V: Final Report, 24 June 2016


Description:

Study to minimise the abrasion caused by sand and minerals from harvested encroacher bush biomass with possible alternative technologies and improvements for manufacturing a selection of compressed wood products in Namibia - Milestone V: Final Report.

Summary / Notes:

The team of Consultants undertook site visits to leading operators and manufacturers of the above compressed wood products, took samples at a range of points along the value chain of most of the product lines and conducted interviews with operators and manufacturers of the equipment. Overseas manufacturers were contacted telephonically and per e-mail. Drawings, workshop manuals and proposalsto reduce wear were discussed at length. Applicable wood meal samples were screened into various sizing fractions, weighed on-site and checked against operating instructions of the equipment suppliers.
