PROCESS MODELLING FOR MORE EFFICIENT PULP AND PAPER MANUFACTURING
Integrated paperboard manufacturing consists of a number of unit processes that continuously generate large amounts of process data. Manufacturing is energy-intensive and variations must be taken into account to achieve the optimal production process. A new thesis at Karlstad University shows how different mathematical models can be applied to the processes in aspects of improved product quality and reduced energy use.
Everyone can contribute to climate action
Achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and related sustainability initiatives will require halving of global greenhouse gas emissions each decade from now on through to 2050, when net zero emissions should be achieved. The recent article by the assistant Professor Avit K. Bhowmik from Risk and Environmental Studies, in Environmental Research Letters shows how everyone on this planet can effectively contribute to climate action.
