SUNPAP project – Final Conference 19-20 June 2012

Nano Fibrillated Cellulose production, factors affecting quality, paper & board applications, risk and sustainability assessment.

Location: Palazzo Turati, Via Meravigli 9/b–20123, Milan (Italy)

What is SUNPAP?

Scale-Up Nano Particles in Modern Papermaking (SUNPAP) is a large-scale integrating project in the European Community’s 7th Framework Programme under the NMP programme. The general aim of the SUNPAP project is to direct the paper and board production to even more sustainable use of materials and production technologies. Special attention was paid to sustainability assessment and life cycle analysis throughout the project. The project is coordinated by Dr. Ulla Forsström from VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT), Finland.
