Processes for board, printing and packaging paper

Research and technical development on papermaking. The results will help minimize cost and environmental impact through efficient use of energy and biomass resources, maximize volume and quality through production efficiency and runnability, meet societal needs with products made from forest biomass, and enable circular economy.

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 usage in 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.
