Luiz Oliveira, Research Leader at FPInnovations in Vancouver BC, Canada and Marc Savard, Researcher in Québec QC, Canada here together with the Chaired Professor Diego Elustondo at Luleå technical university in Skellefteå. Luiz and Marc are visiting Sweden to look into drying technologies that could be of potential interest to Canadian lumber producers. They visited the Alent head office in Luleå and our branch office in Skellefteå. Both Luiz and Marc are co-authors of the comprehensive drying handbook for the Canadian wood industry and have worked extensively with the industry. They were impressed with our systematic working methods for developing the Alent Pump.
