The Master's programme “Paper Science and Technology – Paper Technology and Bio-based Fiber Materials” is a research-oriented programme with a focus on paper technology and builds on the skills acquired in a Bachelor's programme. It provides engineering and chemical knowledge for the industrial production of paper and biobased fiber materials in an economical and sustainable way as well as for the development of manufacturing and processing methods.
- Production, characterization and application of biobased fiber materials in sustainable products.
- Recycling processes and concepts.
- Research topics, e.g. the development of inkjet inks and paper combinations for recyclable printouts and the production of special papers for forming by deep drawing.
