Traditional paper and board products are based on sustainable production. They are made mainly from renewable materials and can be recycled several times before finally being used for energy production. In today’s high-quality products, however, oil-based additives and, in particular, binders in surface treatments are very commonly used. The general aim of the forest cluster is to direct the research at even more sustainable use of materials and production technologies. Scale-Up Nano Particles in Modern Papermaking (SUNPAP) is a new large-scale integrating project in the European Community’s 7th Framework Programme under the NMP programme. The three-year project started on 1 July 2009. It is co-ordinated by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT), Finland.
