FPIRC Course No. 17: Product Oriented Wood Supply and Fibre Processing

3 mar 2011

Course description/Content:

  • Introduction on forest and industry, products and development
  • Major forest resources worldwide, changing patterns of products, markets and technology
  • Formation of wood, how fibres get their properties
  • Major types of paper produced, critical properties and fibre properties of importance
  • Differences in fibre properties between and within tree species and trees of major forest resources
  • Methods for measurement of fibre properties in wood and pulp
  • Modelling and simulation of fibre properties in trees and stands, logs and chips
  • The supply chain: Forestry, harvesting, logistics, accounting
  • Possibilities to improve allocation of wood and fibres to mills and products for more uniform and suitable fibres. Limitations due to cost, logistics, etc.
  • Possibilities to improve the suitability of fibres at the mill through wood classification and wood yard operations
  • Processes from chips to pulp. Processes from pulp to paper
  • Effects of raw materials and fibre processing on pulp and paper products
  • Measurements and control
  • Discussion on possibilities to optimize

Learning objectives:

  • Improved understanding of possibilities to  produce pulp and paper products with target properties (or better) and reduce costs through a more product oriented use and processing of wood and fibres, aiming for more uniform and suitable fibres and well adapted processing in the mill, from the forest to the product
  • Improved knowledge about how this can be achieved and about limitations due to costs, logistics, etc.
