Oregon’s forest sector generates nearly $20 billion dollars in economic benefits each year. To fuel this industry with innovative ideas, the Oregon State University Extension Service and the OSU College of Forestry created the Oregon Wood Innovation Center. The center assists companies with new product development, testing, and market assessments. Activities include testing new adhesives and composite materials, assess biofuel potential, and develop building materials for the growing green building industry.
