FENIX - pilot park for pulp, paper and paperboard developement

FENIX is the name of RISE’s pilot parks consisting of test beds with a focus on the needs of today as well as the opportunities of tomorrow within the pulp, paper and packaging industry.

At FENIX, industry and academia can test and explore both new and traditional pulp, paper and packaging materials but also additional bio-based alternatives.

Our full-scale pilots enable upscaling of many fibre-based materials, including the possibility of studying process development, making it possible to quickly validate the potential of new ideas and innovations.

Since development is a step by step process, we can offer testing opportunities along the entire chain, reducing the threshold for implementation and development.

Our facilities and equipment include:

Hand sheets ISO 5269-1, Rapid Köthen hand sheets ISO 5269-2, ISO 5269-3

Dynamique sheet former - grammage: 20 - 280 g/m2

XPM - amount of pulp: 1,8 - 8 kg. grammage 15 – 250 g/m2

Stratex - amount of pulp: 1 - 50 kg, grammage: 10 – 300 g/m2

FEX - amount of pulp 50 kg – 10 tons, grammage: 30 - 380 g/m2

RISE also offers additional expertise within several related areas, from chipping, pulping and packaging tests to virtual labs and simulation.

XPM - Paper pilot for research, development and problem solving issues

The XPM is a paper pilot and a cost-efficient tool for testing and evaluation of new applications for pulp and chemicals. Continuous development of the XPM and its possibilities for web forming ensures a high quality pilot trial e…

Paper chemistry

The field of performance chemistry in papermaking includes finding the optimal use and performance of various functional additives for each case. The desired effects may be increased fibre-fibre interaction and bonding, control of…

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 …

Testbed for wood and fibre properties

The laboratory has world-unique instruments for efficient analysis of a large number of properties of wood and fibres important for industry and research. The instruments can also contribute to projects where effects of forest man…

Pulp and paper

Have you considered how much paper and cardboard you use? With growing demands to replace plastic, the need for cellulose-based solutions will increase. If we want to save on natural resources, we need to create a closed loop for …


What is the purpose of packaging? Besides looking good on a shelf and attracting potential buyers, it also serves the purpose of protecting both its content and its surroundings. A package must be easy to handle, from the point of…
