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 will be one of several websites within RISE. Please visit for more information about RISE.

Tissue products and processes

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 most important product properties for many tissue and fluff products are strength, wet resiliency, absorbency, and haptic properties. In some cases, these properties conflict with each other or with the efficiency and runnability of the production process. Our objective is to understand and quantify the relationship between fibre types, production process and properties of the final product. We will apply both standard and custom-made characterisation methods and use advanced laboratory equipment, pilot-scale trials and full-scale implementation.
