The pulp production plays a central role in the bioeconomy, the transition to a fossil-free society and circular processes. The main part of fiber line is the cooking, where wood is treated with chemicals in order to liberate the fibers from each other and for some applications subsequently bleached.
The pulp technology team at RISE supports research and development with respect to the industry’s changing needs and challenges as well as the stricter regulation and increased client demands. The focus is on developing sustainable and cost-effective process solutions in the entire value chain from various raw- and recycled materials to pulp for different purposes.
RISE works both to improve existing cooking processes, oxygen delignification, bleaching and to develop new pulping processes. Optimization of the processes for maximum utilization of raw materials; saving chemicals, energy, water and constantly reducing the environmental footprint is the core of the research and development work. RISE has solid knowledge and experience in chemical pulping (cooking and bleaching), access to modern equipment and qualified specialists, which facilitates testing of ideas, demonstration in lab and pilot scale and speeding up the implementation and trouble-shooting on industrial scale. We can provide the answers and the information you need within the following areas:
We work with both long-term research to improve existing processes for cooking, oxygen delignification and bleaching as well as handling emergency process problems on the fiber line. Some examples of what RISE offers in the pulp technology area are:
