Process analysis and product variability in papermaking

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.

Paper and board makers need to deliver aconsistent product quality. Competitiveness also requires maximum machine efficiency with minimum production losses due to unwanted interruptions and grade changes.Tools will be developed that allow the entire production to be monitored online. Combined with advanced analysis methods and verification studies, these tools will provide a better understanding of the root causes for process and product variability, and how they can be reduced and controlled. This increased digitalisation of the production process and thequality control will improve product uniformity, process efficiency, and raw material utilisation.
