Introduction
Wood products have district advantages over other
materials because they are produced from renewable raw
materials and also friendly to the environment. Moreover,
wood products have unique characteristics of being superior
in strength-to-weight ratio, shock absorbance, vibration
damping, and aesthetically appealing as well as warm
touchable.
Southern part of Thailand currently becomes the main
producer of raw materials for wood industries in Thailand.
This is because the South not only contains the majority of
rubberwood plantation but also is a part of the global rain
forests which have suitable habitat for generating fast
growing wood species. It is unfortunate however to learn
that the industrial sector presently consumes rubberwood
inefficiently and generates over 70 percent of wastes from
the harvested logs due to unsuitable processing technology.
An effective research institution on wood is
undoubtedly needed in order to lead the industry in
either solving practical problems of the enormous
wastes or providing a mission oriented research for
technical support to the industry. It might be
beneficial to consider establishing such a research
institute in the South since it is closed to the existing
practical problems and the main raw materials of the
country. Wood Science and Engineering Research
Unit is therefore proposed to be established at
Walailak University.
Walailak University has unique advantages for establishing a research centre for
wood products. It is located right at the centre of plantations of rubber trees and other
fast growing wood species in Nakon-Si-Thammarat provice which is not only the most-
densely populated but also posses largest agricultural commodities in the South. The
university's administration system is fully autonomous and independent from
bureaucratic governance. Besides, the university has various supporting facilities
capable of enhancing research activities, i.e. The Center for Scientific and
Technological Equipments, the Center for Computer Services, the Center for Library
Resources and Educational Media, etc.
