Containerboard/Packaging
Paper-based food packaging needs a coating to prevent water or oxygen from penetrating the packaging and spoiling the foodstuff inside. Up to the present this protective coating is manufactured from petroleum-based plastic. For several decades, researchers have been trying to find a good bio-based material to replace fossil-based raw materials. Research done at Karlstad University now shows that a mixture of lignin from wood and starch can satisfy this need.

Safety
Today, the complexity of industrial systems requires increasingly attentive consideration of the theme of safety. Preventing accidents on the job is not a calculation based on a single machine but an outcome of the management logic adopted throughout the production process. And in addition to the normal risk factor, unpleasant unexpected events can arise from deficiencies at the operating phase, lack of clarity in procedures, negligence by operators or human errors. Without forgetting that year after year, international norms and directives to regulate the issue abound.
