Pine resin: The new 'green gold' in Brazil's planted forests
Planted forests in Brazil provide a number of products other than wood raw materials. Consider the Eucalyptus tree, for instance. From its leaves, it is possible to obtain essential oils and natural dyes; from its flower, Eucalyptus honey; and its branches and bark provide biomass for power generation. Pine forests, particularly the Elliotti and tropical species, produce a valuable resin that is used by the chemical and food industries in the manufacture of disinfectants, detergents, paints, adhesives, aromatics and flavorings.
