Characterization of wood and pulp analyses

It is important to caricaturize both wood, wood chips, unbleached pulp, bleached pulp in order to have a stable production and process development.


RISE can analyze all types of cellulose-based masses. If you have a complex matrix, please contact us and we will try to give you relevant analysis suggestions.

Pulp technology

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 …

Cooking of cellulose and residues on a pilot scale

We have flexibile digesters and have effective methods and equipment for simulating every commercial cooking method. RISE has extensive experience with digester systems and is always working to improve both sulphate and sulphite t…

Analyzes of carbohydrates and anions in cellulose processes

Analyzing carbohydrates and anions, such as oxalate, chloride, sulfite, sulfate and thiosulfate ions, can provide increased knowledge about the chemical balance. Process control in the cellulose industry is necessary to reduce run…

Separation of chemical compounds

Separating and purifying various chemical liquids such as cooking liquids, yeast tanks and black liquor is important in traditional forest industry process liquids and materials, as well as in the biorefinery area.

Studies of wood properties

Wood studies can provide answers to many questions. Can we mix in new types of wood but at the same time maintain the properties of the current pulp? If so, how much can we mix into the chips for the digester? What happens to the …

Analyzes for raw material control

When you buy new chemicals, it can be good to know that the new one is as good as the old chemical. We can help you analyze a number of chemicals.


Bleaching studies can for example be used in connection with problems or in case of suspicion of loss of important pulp properties in the bleaching plant. RISE has long and extensive experience of bleaching and suitable equipment …

Wood and wood handling

Wood is one of the most important variables in pulp production and requirements for the control of incoming wood materials to the mills are strict. At RISE, we conduct complete studies of different types of fibre material to deter…
