The change in market conditions has become the main trend of discussions at the site of the Timber Industry Forum in St. Petersburg.

- The forum participants discussed the problems faced by the players of the Timber Industry complex (TIC) in the current conditions, the search for new areas of product sales, the approach to the implementation of investment projects, - said Andrey Dorokhov, Senior Strategy Analyst at “Metadynea” LLC. – The importance of preserving the environmental agenda in the timber industry was noted separately.
Vasily Perepelkin was among the invited experts at the round table discussion titled "Plates and plywood" with a report on "Experience of using paraformaldehyde in the synthesis of formaldehyde resins". The prospects for the development of a new area of production became the main thesis of the report:
- Paraformaldehyde is interesting as an alternative to formalin for manufacturers, because it stands out favorably through the convenience of transportation and storage, including long-term storage. At the same time, its use is possible directly in the synthesis of all formaldehyde resins with minimal changes in the production chart, - Vasily Perepelkin clarified.
