When Apr 19, 2016
from 10:30 AM to 04:30 PM
Where Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany

The EU REFFIBRE project organizes an open workshop on April 19, 2016, in Darmstadt, Germany.

Time: Tuesday April 19, 10:30 am to 4:30 pm
Venue: Georg-Christoph-Lichtenberg-Haus. Address Dieburger Straße 241, 64287 Darmstadt, room “Großer Saal”

The workshop will discuss how recycling should be addressed in LCA calculations and determination of resource efficiency indicators in paper/board value chains. Also utilization of modelling as a tool to understand the effects of changing the mass flows and the degree of recycling at mills will be discussed. These two topics are relevant when aiming at resource efficient production and multi-product mill concepts.

The presentations include

  • Environmental aspects of side stream applications
  • Parameters of Paper for Recycling grades in Europe for allocation methods used in environmental assessment
  • Environmental indicators for paper/board value chains based on paper for recycling – Challenges of allocation methods
  • Valorisation of side streams and novel products from paper mills using paper for recycling
  • Effects of increasing rejects in stock preparation for side stream applications – Outcome from models
  • Effects of increased reject amount on properties of graphical and packaging papers? – Outcome from modelling studies
  • Control of paper making process based on online resource efficiency indicators
