Research is directed to industrial applications of intelligent methods covering a large area from paper and metallurgical industries to biotechnology and also electronics production and telecommunications. Applications consist of:

  • soft sensors
  • advanced control, diagnostics and condition monitoring (lime kiln, pulp cooking, bleaching, TMP-refiner, paper machine, blast furnace, converter plant, continuous casting, solar power plant, waste water processes, bioprocesses, fluidised bed granulator)
  • wireless systems
  • modelling and control in energy production of different scales (bioenergy, hydrogen energy, solar energy, small-scale boilers and furnaces)


Publications starting from year 2000. Continuously updated.

We have also two older report series (which are currently on hold): Series A is in English and Series B in Finnish.
