Research and technical development on tissue paper. 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.
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.
