Foam forming: • Tackles concerns of high water and energy consumption in conventional papermaking (especially for less fibrillated, lignln-free fibers) • Produces a new type of fiber network (less layered structure) Surface active agents: • Do not influence paper physical properties • Carboxymethylated tignin results in more stable foams & CML foam-based handsheets have better mechanical strength Fiber types: • Dominate the fiber-network structure = determines paper properties.
