Implementation in autumn period 1


Upon completion of the course, a student should be able to explain the value chain of chemical processing of renewable lignocellulosic raw materials to pulp and different end-products. A student is able to identify lignocellulosic raw material sources, their properties, their main components and utilization potential of components. The student also identifies the unit operations of chemical pulping processes, can explain their operational principles and their objectives in the process and their role in end product properties. Besides cellulose fibre production, the student identifies biorefining concepts of chemical pulp components (cellulose, hemicelluloses, lignin and extractives) into high value products; cellulose derivatives, special fibres, nanofibrillar and micronized celluloses, and green chemicals.


Lignocellulosic raw materials, fundamentals of chemical pulping, recovering of chemicals in kraft pulping, bleaching of pulp. High value biomass products by biorefining (e.g. nanocelluloses and soluble celluloses).


Blended teaching.


The implementation methods of the course vary. Lectures and exercises max. 36 h, web learning and self-study 97 h. A part of the teaching can be replaced by group work or home work.


Students interested in bioeconomy.


488052A Introduction to Bioproduct and Bioprocess Engineering is recommended.
