Phytosanitary Efficacy of Kiln Drying (PEKID)

Schöder Thomas

The aim of the project was to determine whether harmful organisms related to wood would be killed by kiln drying processes according to the requirements of the EU-Directive 2000/29/EC. The reduction of the moisture content to less than 20 % should be carried out using different temperature regimes. Results were aimed to clarify whether the phytosanitary effect of a K.D. treatment is achieved by desiccation of the wood to make it unsuitable as host resource for e.g. insects, or the thermal effects on the target organisms.
