Welcome to Forest Chemicals Review!

The only international trade journal focused on the pine and pulp chemicals industry, which includes products based on rosin, terpenes, tall oil, and related materials. This industry, historically referred to as "naval stores" because of the ancient practice of using pine tar and pitch to seal the hulls of wooden ships, serves a wide variety of modern end uses.
An annual subscription includes six bi-monthly issues plus the International Yearbook, an annual publication which presents statistical information on production and trade of forest chemicals. Worldwide circulation extends throughout companies and individuals involved in all aspects of the forest chemicals value chain, from raw material sources to initial processing to upgraded derivatives to ultimate end use applications.
Readers have access to industry news, company announcements, management topics, technology briefs, international commerce, people happenings, regulatory affairs, and other features of interest to anyone engaged in this industry.

In every issue: 
  •  Industry News
