Wood packaging material is made from unprocessed raw wood so it is very easy for pests to enter the wood. Because of the origin of wood package, it is difficult to know age and type of the wood. Therefore NPPOs are recommended in order to receive wood packaging materials that have been approved without conditions except processing the wood packaging materials.
Wood packaging materials that is not limited in type and age are usually use durable wood class III and IV. These types of wood are Jackfruit, Albazia, Rubber, Sengon buto, Mani’i, and etc. Types of plant organisms that usually attack wood packaging is Anobiidae, Bostrichidae, Lyctinae, Soil Termites, Wood Termites Dry, fungi and many more. Usually the way to handle it by using Fumigation (Phosphine, Sulfuryl fluoride, Carbonyl sulphide), KD, CPI, Irradiation, and humidity regulation. The prevention methods above is actually have been regulated in ISPM 15
However, these standards are made with reference in European countries that have different temperatures and climates with our tropical country. Humidity in the subtropical region is very low while in Indonesia it is very high.
Besides that, the wood that is use for packaging in Europe is mostly from needle wood (softwood) types, such as pine, and usually with the same age range that comes from the result of planting. While in tropical countries the type of used wood is very heterogeneous which usually comes from the community and that is hardwood wood with a low durable grade.
Therefore, ISPM 15 for Indonesia requires modifications that is adjusted accordingly to the climate, simpler method, cheap and eco – friendly. The modification must refer to Annex 1 from ISPM 15 / BARANTAN. And the most importantly is continue to provide guarantees of OPT attacks and control on each Wood Packaging.
In this study the aim is to make the efficacy of the 8 God Solution made by PT. KSJ for soil termites, dry wood termites, wood and wood rot fungi for wood packaging purposes with a very simple method, easy application, inexpensive, not energy-efficient and environmentally friendly, in accordance with the world commitment in terms of overcoming Global Warming.
This study aimed to make the efficacy of the 8 God solutions made by PT. KSJ for soil termites, dry wood termites, mould wood for the purposes of Wood Packaging with a very simple method, easy application, cheap, not energy wasteful and environmentally friendly, in accordance with the world commitment in terms of overcoming Global Warming.
The tests will be carried out using Japan Wood Preserving Ascosiation (JWPA) standards and / or modified Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) standards. This is a step / breakthrough to provide control over wood packaging and provide assurance for each wooden package from the attack / reinfestation of OPT / fungi.
