The RISE institutes Innventia, SP and Swedish ICT have merged in order to become a stronger research and innovation partner for businesses and society.
During 2017 innventia.com will be one of several websites within RISE. Please visit ri.se for more information about RISE.

Source efficient paper and board making

Synergies between paper chemistry, paper mechanics and papermaking will be exploited in order to develop resource and energy efficient papermaking processes.

What is the research programme area about?

We will exploit the synergies between paper chemistry, paper mechanics and papermaking in order to develop resource- and energy-efficient papermaking processes. This includes the use of nanofibrillated cellulose and the possibilities of sheet stratification.

What benefit will the research bring?

A life cycle assessment performed in the EcoTarget project showed that the most effective way to reduce energy consumption is to reduce the fibre content in the product without deteriorating the production quality. Methods for producing stronger paper and board are therefore needed to facilitate efforts to achieve this.
