One way to increase the export value for the Swedish forest industry of wood based paperboard by means of sustainable development, is to use more of fibre materials produced at high yield (>90%) as in chemi-mechanical pulping (CTMP) processes.

At Mid Sweden University there are several research projects on fibre and energy. Despite the dismal outlook expressed by some in the printing paper industry, we see great potential for the future in the production and process know-how of the forest industry. Coating could be a way to develop new paper products, such as solar cells and interactive wallpapers.
E2Mpi is a mechanical pulping initiative by Holmen, Norske Skog, SCA, Stora Enso and the Swedish Energy Agency regarding reduction of energy efficiency. Administrated by FSCN, Mid Sweden University.
In this project we consider fibre network as a micro-mechanical and microfluidics system, and investigate the non-uniform deformation of fibre network and the transport of complex fluids (body fluids) within the network. Such a problem is currently the core issues related to the new product development of hygiene products.
At Mid Sweden University in Sundsvall there are currently several research projects on fibre and energy. We see great potential for the future in the production and process know-how of the forest industry. Coating is a promising method to develop efficient systems for energy storage in paper-based supercapacitors.
Our research project Lignofuel is a pre study funded by EU regional development fund. Read more about the project in Swedish below.
We present our research project Miljöhorisont in Swedish below.
Increasing the energy efficiency in mechanical pulping by modifying the wood chipping process is the goal for this project.
This project is a part of our KK Research Environment at Mid Sweden University. Low cost solar cells are needed. Manufacturing processes of today are mainly based on costly vacuum methods making the solar electricity to the most expensive one. Roll-to-roll processing is potentially more efficient as manufacturing method for solar cells.
This research project is a prestudy funded by EU regional development Fund. Read more about the project in Swedish below.
Our pre study "Utveckling av industriellt gångbar tillverkningsmetod för tungmetallsbindande tensider" is financed by EU regional development Fund. Read more about the research project in Swedish below.
The Wood and Fibre Mechanics research group is examining the wood chipping process and the possibility of tailoring this process to reduce energy consumption during subsequent refining.
