Application of near Infrared Spectroscopy and Multivariate Analysis in the Forest Products Industry
Near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy has received a great deal of attention in forest products industry. The physical, mechanical and chemical properties of inorganic materials can be predicted using the NIR spectroscopy and multivariate analysis (MVA). NIR spectroscopy is suitable for quantitative analysis, especially the process monitoring and quality control. The present paper reviews the application of NIR spectroscopy and MVA in the forest products industry, such as tree improvement and silviculture, pulp and paper, lumber products and the online monitoring.
