“Value-added” is a term globally used to describe materials that have been remanufactured from rough lumber or logs, into a higher grade of finished product.
Two types of remanufactured products are generally recognized:
- semi-finished and finished products
- remanufactured lumber
1. Semi-finished and finished products are manufactured from
commodity wood products and may include:
- engineered wood products (laminated beams, trusses, wood I-beams, etc.)
- millwork (doors, windows, architectural woodwork, turnings, etc.)
- cabinets (kitchen & vanity cabinets, cabinet doors, countertops, etc.)
- furniture (household furniture, ready-to-assemble furniture,
- commercial and institutional furniture, patio furniture, etc.)
- pallets and containers, and
- other wood products (chopsticks, ladders, toys, etc.)
2. Remanufactured lumber products include all lumber or wood product outputs from a remanufacturing process performed on sawn lumber input stock. The remanufactured process includes subjecting lumber input stock to one or more of the following processes including: change in thickness, width, length, profile, or joining together by finger joint or otherwise.
