REFFIBRE is an EU-funded project that started in November 2013. Using parallel tracks, the project developed various tools for the paper and board industry to cover different parts of the value chain. These tools were then tested through the comparison of different modelling results of their environmental impact with the results from actual demonstration tests.

These innovative concepts include fractionation of input materials and production of novel products from side streams (e.g. bio-oil using pyrolysis).

This was done to provide the needed information regarding the impact of new production processes, raw material input and product innovations, as well as the influence on the recyclability of the end product. The tools enabled paper makers to consider innovations affecting profitability in the value chain.
