5 ECTS / 133 h of work




Implementation in autumn period 2.


Upon completion of the course, a student should be able to explain the value chain of mechanical and chemimechmical processing of renewable lignocellulosic raw materials. Upon completion of the course, a student should be able to identify the unit operations of mechanical and chemi-mechanical pulping process and can explain their operational principles. The student can evaluate the raw material properties and importance of different unit processes on the quality of the end products. In addition, the student can compare fibre properties of different mechanical and chemi-mechanical pulps and wood powders and can explain their effects on the quality of the end product. Student can explain production principle of engineered wood, biocomposites and pelletizing.


Processing of wood, mechanical fibres, wood powders: raw material properties, mechanical and chemimechanical defibering, screening, bleaching, biomass micronization and pulverization, the production of engineered wood, wood-plastic composites and pellets. End product properties.


Blended teaching


The implementation methods of the course vary. Lectures and exercises max. 34 h, web learning and self-study 99 h. A part of the teaching can be replaced by group work or home work.
