Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Develops Blockchain App with ChainWood For Forestry Transparency
Spain To Develop Blockchain App For More Transparency In The Forestry Industry
Spain is another country that is looking to use the blockchain technology to achieve some technological progress. The Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food plans has applied the blockchain to create a technology that will help in the development of the forestry industry.
The ChainWood group, which is in charge of the project, is looking to improve the traceability and the efficiency of how wood supply works in the country. It is looking to implement the technology in logistics to obtain better results.
ChainWood is made up of eight partners of the forestry industry. They come from many different Spanish regions like Galicia, Madrid, Andalusia, Castilla y Leon and Asturias. This group was created by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.
At the moment, the group has already met in Santiago de Compostela and Madrid and they are looking to use this brand new technology that will be paramount to increase the transparency of the services in the forestry industry.
Forestry industry processes contain creation of solid wood, cellulose paste, biomass and disintegration of wood and the whole plan is to use the distributed ledger technology, big data and machine learning to automate some of the processes and to obtain better and more transparent results.
As soon as the platform is fully ready, three tests will be made. They will be Castilla y Leon with poplar trees, Galicia with oak trees and Asturias with chestnuts.
China Also Using Similar Technology
The Sichuan province of China is also using a very similar technology for its own forestry industry. The company is making a partnership with Hangzhou Yi Shu Blockchain Technology to develop the industry and alleviate poverty using the tech.
