10th Fundamental Mechanical Pulp Research Seminar

Call for Papers is extended until March 21

Registration is now open

After visiting many cities in Scandinavia, and attracting participants from all over the world, FMPRS now comes to Finland and Jyväskylä!

The first FMPRS seminar was arranged in Espoo 1996 on the initiative of late Jan Sundholm at KCL. The event was highly successful.

Now, A Fredrikson Research & Consulting Ltd (AFRC) and University of Jyväskylä (JYU) have taken up the challenge to organize the 10th Fundamental Mechanical Pulp Research Seminar on June 13–14, 2017 in Jyväskylä, Finland.

The seminar is open for all researchers. This seminar provides you a forum to present and discuss your new achievements and experiences in the field of mechanical pulping among university and institution researchers and industrial fellows around the world. The seminar will be documented with abstracts and slides only to make it easier to present and discuss the latest research results.

For PhD students and retired scientists we will have a special discount.

The Key Note Speakers for the Seminar are:

M.Sc. Mikko Vuori from UPM and he will give Presentation with a title:
Utilizing Electricity Market Possibilities in Pulp Production”

M.Sc. Taisto Nevalainen from StoraEnso and he will give Presentation with a title:
The role of different raw materials in consumer boards”

Topics for the presentations and posters are:

  • raw materials and pretreatments
  • fiber modification
  • production of nano and micro particles from lignocellulosic materials
  • new pulping methods and analyzers
  • bleaching of pulp
  • pulps for paper and board production
  • energy systems in mechanical pulping
  • effluent treatment and water management
  • mill conver­sions and site co-location
