Scion, driving innovation and growth in forestry
Harvesting technologies to improve forestry safety; LiDAR remote sensing resource assessment; spray deposition modelling; bio-plastics made from wood fibre; and bio-adhesives derived from wood. These are just some of the advanced technologies developed at Scion.
 
 
A Crown research institute based in Rotorua, Scion specialises in research, science and developing technologies for the forestry, wood products and biomaterials sectors. Our purpose is to help increase innovation and growth in forestry and its related industry sectors. Scion leads the way in research for sustainable forest management and tree breeding; forestry biosecurity; wood processing, wood-related bioenergy, waste streams and other biomaterials; and forestry-based ecosystem services.
 
 
We offer research and development services across the entire forestry value chain, and can tailor contractual relationships to meet the specific needs of each customer. This may include service provision, one-on-one research projects, joint technology development partnerships or strategic multi-party alliances to address sector-based challenges and innovation opportunities.
 
 
Scion is building an innovation centre at its campus - Te Papa Tipu Innovation Park in Rotorua – with $2.5 million in funding from the Bay of Plenty Regional Council’s Regional Infrastructure Fund. The centre’s purpose is to foster innovation in forestry and wood processing industries by housing both start-up businesses and small-to-large operations keen to collaborate and innovate across the forest and wood processing value chain with Scion. The campus is already home to about 30 other forestry related businesses that work collaboratively with Scion in many areas. We welcome your enquiry.
