Abstract [en]

The objective of this paper is to summarize recent trends related to industrial kiln drying with especial emphasis on the drying of softwood dimension lumber in Canada. The paper explores future trends by analyzing the current market condition and wood products requirements. The paper also summarizes current research developments in the area of kiln lumber drying that was published by Canadian universities and research institutes. This includes basic research, such as wood physics and computer simulation, and applied research, such as non-conventional drying strategies and new technologies and sensors. A last note is also included to mention a kiln supervisor tool that was developed in Canada to analyze information related to kiln performance indicators. The kiln supervisor provides important trends for mills aiming to optimize their drying processes and realize gains without substantial investments in capital and other resources
