FMPRS seminar in Norrköping

Save favourite 8 Apr April 2019

On April 2-4 we arranged the 11th Fundamental Mechanical Pulp Research seminar in Norrköping together with our partner companies ÅF, Valmet, Holmen and Treesearch. Approx. 90 persons from academia and forest industries attended the conference.

Keynotespeakers

  • Tommy Wiksand – Holmen Paper - A company in transition based on mechanical pulp
  • Thomas Granfeldt – Valmet - High Yield Pulping - now and forever!
  • Per Engstrand – FSCN - Research trends in high yield pulping

Here are the presentations during the seminar

Process technology

  • Per Engstrand – Decrease in strength along a process line for SC paper
