Boosting raw material and energy efficiency using advanced sheet structure design and fibre modifications

Objective

BoostEff aims at developing new innovative manufacturing concepts for wood-fibre based products giving a significant reduction in environmental footprint. The targeted products are important commodities for the European society: paper and construction board. In spite of the different end uses, the paper making and construction board sectors share wood fibres as a common raw material and convert them into planar structures in which all materials are mixed with limited optimization of their performance. The common features of the three BoostEff Concepts is that they result in tailor-made layered structures: wood-fibres and other materials will be placed in the optimal position for the required functionality. This is achieved by developing and demonstrating separation and layering processes in connection with selective modification of sub-streams of the raw materials. The large potential of these process concepts within papermaking was shown in the FP6-project Ecotarget, where technologies were developed to perform these processes. BoostEff will transfer these techniques into a demonstration and industrial implementation phase in a multi-sectorial context. The BoostEff Concepts will be developed at pilot scale and implemented in full scale in three production units of the industrial partners in the project. Process and product development will proceed in parallel. This includes work for preparing the data necessary in order to proceed into investment projects at the targeted production units at the end of BoostEff. These results will be applicable not only for the specific production units but also serve as a basis for investments elsewhere within the two targeted industrial sectors. It is envisioned that the BoostEff project will contribute to developing more cost efficient and eco efficient processes and technologies, which will result in an upgraded profile for the targeted commodity products.
