The Cocoveneer Project: 2012-16

Development of advanced veneer and other product from coconut wood to enhance livelihoods in South Pacific communities

The ACIAR funded project aims to develop the technologies, processes and expertise to produce veneer and veneer-based products of various grades from senile coconut stems. Residues from the processes will be used to develop soil conditioning products. Senile coconut stems are widespread and have very low value. Livelihoods in South Pacific communities will be enhanced by developing a valuable product from the senile stems.

The Cocowood Project: 2007-2010

Improving value and marketability of coconut wood

The ACIAR funded-project provided the science to underpin coconut wood production, engineering and marketing initiatives and address gaps in our understanding of cocowood properties and suitable processing technologies.
