Abstract [en]

ECOTARGET is an EU-funded research project covering process development in the development chain from mechanical pulp, to papermaking. The project involves 26 organisations: universities, institutes, supplier companies and papermaking companies from nine European countries. The project is divided in six subprojects whereof five are dedicated to process development and the sixth evaluates the impact on mill and society level if the newly developed processes will be implemented. All process ideas in the project are evaluated with regard to reduction of at least one of the four target areas Energy Consumption, Wood Raw Material, Fresh Water and Waste and Emissions. The project has been running four years and results are beginning to show. This article gives an overview of the project and also some examples of promising results for new unit processes. One of the examples covers a new way of making stratified (layered) sheets in one single headbox, even for thin paper qualities. By placing different fibre types, in different layers of a paper product the same functionality is achieved (surface quality, stiffness etc.) while using less resources. The innovation in this technology is to use liquid layers for the separation of fibre flows in the headbox instead of solid vanes which has been tried for many years already. The technology has now been proven in pilot scale and can be used for other purposes too, as for example to place fillers in the middle of a sheet, by injecting fillers into the liquid layers only.
