Understanding the mechanical processes in deep-drawing and press-forming of compacted paper laminates

Compacted paper laminates can be formed by deep-drawing or press-forming to produce packaging solutions with height to diameter ratios not reachable with conventional thermoforming machines. These processes involve complex interactions of the fibres in the compacted paper layers and between these layers, including the bonding between them, which can be made either with glue or …

The kinetics of lignin extraction in oxygen delignification.

The current and future environmental challenges call for improved and more sustainable processes in the pulp industry. To contribute to a sustainable and competitive Swedish bioeconomy the pulp industry needs to increase efficiency without increasing the use of hazardous chemicals. Oxygen delignification is a unit process that has been used in pulp mill fiberlines between …

Multi scale modeling of the delignification kinetics during kraft cooking

The kraft process is today the dominant industrial technology for the production of pulp from wood.In this process, wood chips are boiled with chemicals in order to dissolve lignin, hemicellulose andextractives. The process itself contains several complex mass transport mechanisms, where thechemicals are to be transported into the wood chip and then further into the …

Transparenta, cellulosabaserade förpackningsmaterial med goda barriäregenskaper

I mark och hav ansamlas på grund av mänsklig aktivitet stora mängder plaster, ofta från påsaroch förpackningar. I värsta fall tar det flera hundra år för naturen att bryta ner dessa plaster.För att åtgärda denna miljöförstöring räcker det alltså inte bara att vi blir bättre på att återvinnaoch slänga vårt plastskräp på rätt sätt, utan …

The effect of compaction parameters on the properties of high-deformable paper

This project addresses the challenges of producing high-deformable paper for 3D forming applications using the in-plane compaction process. Enabling 3D forming of advanced paper structures paves the way for complete elimination of plastic based packaging or partial replacement of plastic in multi-material packages, which aligns with current international strategies for a sustainable development of the …
