New technology for measuring the smallest components of wood pulp could make paper and paperboard production more efficient

In the paper and packaging industry, having control of the smallest components in the wood pulp is important for the efficiency of the manufacturing process and the properties of the finished products. A doctoral project within the Industrial Graduate School, Resource-Smart Processes, is currently developing a method that allows the industry to capitalise on this. The goal is smarter and more resource-efficient paper and cardboard production.
