Kick-off meeting of REFFIBRE

Kick-off meeting of REFFIBRE

VTT Espoo

First meeting of REFFIBRE was held in Espoo, december 2013

Kick-off meeting was hosted by VTT.

REFFIBRE has started in November 2013. Using parallel tracks, the project will start developing various tools to cover different parts of the value chain. Once the tools are developed, they will be tested by comparing the modeling results of the environmental impact of various innovative concepts with the results from actual demonstration tests. These innovative concepts include fractionation of input materials and production of novel products from side streams.

The REFFIBRE consortium consists of paper makers, knowledge institutions, technology developers and other organisations in order to cover all needed aspects.
