Improving corrugated board performance

The proposal for The Bioeconomy Research Programme 2018–2020 consists of a number of programme areas containing a variety of research topics. The programme areas each address mutual questions and opportunities of great interest to a consortium of RISE customers. All programme areas are planned for three years.

The market position of corrugated board, as well as for paper-based packaging in general, can be strengthened and expanded by eliminating the weaknesses of these products. Weaknesses include their sensitivity to moisture, limitations in print quality and the deterioration of liner and fluting. We will address these weaknesses by developing new process solutions for the base papers and relevant testing methods for packaging paper, packaging and print properties combined with testing their relevance for conformity to various transportation standards.
