Partnerships between the U.S. forest
products industry and the U.S. Department
of Energy's (DOE) Office of Industrial
Technologies (OIT) accelerate technology
research, development, and deployment.
The forest products industry was the
first of nine energy- and waste-intensive
industries to participate in the OIT Industries
of the Future (IOF) program, beginning in
1994. This industry-government collabo-
ration, called Agenda 2020, is facilitated
through the American Forest and Paper
Association (AF&PA), whose members
represent 90% of the industry. AF&PA
established a Chief Technology Officers
(CTO) Committee to coordinate IOF
activities for the forest products industry.
Partnerships with OIT and over 50 com-
panies and universities give participants
access to new resources, R&D results,
and technologies that reduce energy and
environmental costs while improving
energy efficiency and productivity-thus
enabling forest products companies to
The need to continually optimize
has resulted in reduced staffing
and fewer dollars for new
technologies. The DOE's OIT
Industries of the Future and other
energy efficiency initiatives help
to fill these gaps by supporting
industry-specific plans, and
providing technical and financial
resources that reduce risk and
leverage R&D dollars.
