My current research mainly focuses on energy efficiency improvement, possibilities to increase utilization of biomass and reduction of CO2 emissions, especially within the forest industry. Carbon capture technologies are an interesting opportunity within pulp mills, and thus they are also under my interest. So far, my research has considered predominantly the Finnish and Swedish pulp and paper industries, which have been forerunners in an energy-efficient operation as well as a shift from fossil fuels to bio-based alternatives.
