In Finland, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, along with other partners, has started setting up a new pilot scale technology platform for foam forming applications. Research will focus on developing new recyclable and light weight wood fiber products.
Foam forming technology may make it possible to improve paper properties and enable manufacture of high porosity, smooth and light weight products, including hygiene products, insulation materials, filters, various printed intelligence, and nano- or microcellulose applications. The project is funded (EUR 917,778) by the European Regional Development Fund via the Regional Council of Central Finland.
