Claudia Esteves defend her doctoral thesis December 16


On December 16, Claudia Esteves defends her doctoral thesis with the title 'Pulp strength enhancement by oxygen delignification'. The opponent is Professor Christine Chirat, Grenoble INP – Pagora, UGA and the supervisors are Elisabet Brännvall, Olena Sevastyanova and Sören Östlund.

Welcome to follow the defense at KTH room F3, KTH campus or online, starting at 10.00.

From abstract: “Oxygen delignification is widely used in the pulp and paper industry as a part of delignification process between the kraft cook and bleaching. However, its potential has not been fully utilized. Rather than an intermediate process between cooking and bleaching, oxygen delignification is a strong oxidizing agent with powerful effects on the pulp properties, the hypothesis that oxygen delignification has the potential to improve the pulp mechanical properties was investigated.”
