FPS COST Action E36
Modelling and Simulation in Pulp and Paper Industry

The main objective of the Action is to advance the development and application of simulation techniques in the pulp and paper manufacturing processes. The aim is to minimize environmental impact, and increase productivity and cost-competitiveness. As simulation and advanced control is not yet common in the paper industry special attention will be given on the topics of the current use of simulation software, recommendations on the exchange of know-how contained in models and on suitable software tools and requirements for further software development. It is also possible to reveal the applicability of new modelling and simulation tools that have been developed for other modern industries to the pulp and paper industry.
