Processes for board, printing and packaging paper

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 production is a cornerstone of the forest industry and, although a mature technology, the quest for competitiveness and sustainability is never-ending. We will evaluate novel approaches and give recommendations regarding their industrial implementation. The goal is to reduce raw material and energy usagein papermaking, as well as to enhance the property space for printing paper, sack, and board grades. In general, the focus will be on concepts that can be readily implemented on typical paper machines without large capital investment.
