Resource-Efficient Paper Making based on Eucalyptus Pulp
|Coordinator||RISE INNVENTIA AB|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 300 000|
|Project duration||November 2017 - November 2018|
Purpose and goal
The project has reached its goal. The goal has been to establish Brazil-Swedish cooperation for the development and evaluation of new concepts with fiber-based strength additives and new drying technology in paper manufacturing. The concepts generated within the project then aim at contributing to a more resource-efficient and cost-effective paper production in the future.
Expected results and effects
Good contacts and a promising cooperation between Brazilian and Swedish actors have been developed. The process of starting up and carry out of the project continues, providing answers to expectations such as - Less need for fiber raw materials and reduced energy consumption in papermaking, or that products with new properties come to market - Reduced resistance to conduct pilot trials using available demo facilities, which is expected to enable faster industrial implementation of developed concepts
Planned approach and implementation
Contacts and meetings with potential partners have been implemented as planned to discuss and develop ideas on new process concepts that could contribute to a more resource-efficient paper production. It was relatively easy to involve partners from the Swedish side, while companies in Brazil were far more difficult to reach. However, with consulting support from Business Sweden, who has met several companies, we have now managed to get the company CMPC engaged. The work to realize the established consortium project will now continue.
