The University of New Brunswick’s Wood Science and Technology Centre (WSTC) carries out technology transfer activities to the wood industry in Atlantic Canada and beyond. With funding from NSERC, NRCan, NRC-IRAP, NBIF and ACOA, WSTC has developed numerous technologies that support innovation in the wood industry.

WSTC has a focus in three areas:

  • Engineered wood products and building systems (NTFPs)
  • Non-structural specialty wood products 
  • Emerging bio-products, biofuels

Densification technology

Efficient flange-web joint profile for fabricating wood I-Joists

Short finger profile for fabricating finger-joined structural lumber

Hybrid cross-laminated timber (CLT)
