MoRe Research was established in 2001 with an activity that was primarily based on mission based primarily for customers in the forest industry. But now, MoRe has also expanded their research department.
At the academic celebration at Karlstad University October 20, 2017 were 26 new doctors promoted. One of them was PhD Raghu Deshpande, from the Faculty of health, science and technology, who received a well-deserved laurel for his doctoral dissertation "The initial phase of sodium sulfite pulping of softwood- A comparison of different pulping options".
Since spring this year Raghu Deshpande works as a postdoc at MoRe in association with KTH. The aim of this two-year project is to accumulate new knowledge regarding how cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin are bound to each other after cooking as compared to their native bonds in the wood. The project partners are MoRe, KTH, Kempe Foundations, Domsjö Fabriker, Metsä Board Husum and Processum.
Since June of this year, Tommy Nordin is an industrial licentiate in a research project run in collaboration between Mid University and MoRe Research. The purpose of the project is to reduce the cost of, and facilitate the use of, potentiating multilayer technology by replacing carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) with nanocellulose.
The research part has rapidly turned into an increasingly important part of MoRe Research. Several MoRe pilot equipment are well suited for research projects such as nanocellulose and fibre modification technologies. In order to support and gradually increase current research, Anna Svedberg, former Marketing and Development Manager, has been appointed R&D Manager responsible for research at MoRe.
