Headline of  the Latest Issue

Interview with the Japan Cross Laminated Timber Association

 

CLT, which could be said a mass of timber and is expected to become the pillar for expanding demand of domestic lumber, has many advantages such as light in weight, strong, fire-resistance, high heat insulation and seismic resistance, and quick assembly on site. Supported strongly by political aspect, which aims at reduction of CO2 emissions and sustainable forest utilization, CLT is well on the way to utilization with unprecedented speed for lumber products. But within the industry, there are voices of bewilderments because they did not catch up with the unprecedented speed of developments.

JLJ visited the Japan Cross Laminated Timber Association and interviewed Managing Director Makoto Kawai, and Manager Yoh Nakashima, for the current condition and prospect of CLT to summarize information.
