The Nordic forest industry creates new concepts and provides solutions to mitigate climate challenge. One of the most interesting concepts is the integrated production of pulp and paper products and transportation fuels. The Finnish and Swedish activities are aiming to the same objective increased profitability of pulp and paper industry by using their by-products for producing high-quality renewable fuels. The technical approaches are different. For the technologies the scientific co-operation in the R & D consortium of VTT-ETC-LTU-SINTEF created background know-how through experiments and modelling in NORDSYNGAS project realised between 2010-2014. The objective of the project was to create new scientific knowledge on fluidised-bed and entrained-flow gasification of biomass residues and black liquor in order to support the Nordic industrial development and demonstration projects. In addition, close co-operation between the Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian R&D organisations was organised.
