Fibre-based products are becoming more formable and the development of these materials and production processes are advancing. When it comes to replacing plastics in packaging, formed paper or moulded fibre packaging products are becoming one of the most attractive renewable alternatives.
The combination of RISE collective expertise in key areas such as fibre science, papermaking, converting, barriers and their analysis, enables development of new fibre formulations, improve the fibre forming process technologies, develop novel product solutions and adapted analysis methods. At RISE, it is possible to study these fibrous materials in industrially relevant and novel forming techniques.
The formed fibre area, explained by means of operation possibilities, is divided into:
Our focus is both on material development for enhanced product performance and barrier properties, as well as on process for efficiency and choice of strategy in a wider system of scope. RISE offers opportunities to develop and test new and traditional concepts by use of experimental equipment for moulding and evaluation of products, in terms of for example:
Some of the reference projects are within following areas:
By combining different technical solutions and expertise along the entire value cycle, RISE can help transforming your packaging from plastic to fibre based or improve the performance or process efficiency in a current fibre based packaging solution.
