EffNews: Effective Newsprint production with an ultra-low energy consumption

Updated: 2012-04-10 | Print

The purpose of the project is to produce a new and cost-effective newsprint grade with significantly reduced energy consumption during production and a superior printing performance, in order to increase product margins and maintain the industry partner´s position as one of the leading paper producers in environmental performance.

During the project period major changes will be done to the current papermaking process. The project is thus ambitious and challenging, as today’s newsprint furnish composition must be optimized in order to reach the project goals.

The project is partly funded by the Research Council of Norway, and is a cooperation between several leading partners from industry and PFI.
