Forest Industry Commodity Supply (RÅG) is a course that prepares for professional activities in forestry's main process - to procure raw materials in the most effective way.

 

 

The content of the course is prepared together with industry representatives where the current reference group consists ofHolmen, Södra, Stora Enso, SCA, Norra, VSV Frakt, Sveaskog, Skogforsk, VMF/SDC, Skogsentreprenörerna.

 ”RÅG is about reality - training you for what you’re really gonna do” - Dag Fjeld

 The aim is for the students to understand and analyze the supply system as a whole based on a market-related perspective and to participate in the development of the supply system.

Below you will find more information about the courses that are part of RÅG.

Raw material properties and refining processes

The course aims to provide the students with advanced knowledge the importance of both forest based and other biomass raw material properties, in order to meet end user requirements. The course contains specialisation in processing technique and the role of raw material properties in the industrial supply-chain structure. The course is aimed mainly on wood-based products and pulp/paper, but also energy and other products from forest as well as by-products and other biomasses are addressed.
