The first doctoral dissertation on foam forming leads the way to tailored fibre materials

Foam forming technology enables resource-efficient production of versatile cellulose-based fibre products ranging from light insulation materials to denser packaging products. Despite intensive technology development during the last few years, the mechanisms underlying product microstructure have been poorly known. In his thesis, Ahmad Al-Qararah focuses on studying interactions between fibres and aqueous foam and the dependence of the microstructure on the foam properties. The results are fundamental for the development of a vast range of different fibre products.
