Chemical sciences and biochemistry
Providing analytical support and expertise from the start
Focusing on chemistry and chemical processes, our team of scientists investigates process and quality deviations, customer complaints, and provides analytical support to our mills. Our facility is equipped with modern scientific equipment and is accredited for a range of water, wastewater and dissolving wood pulp (DWP) test methods. The department serves as a point of entry for mills looking for innovative solutions to resolve process issues and to ensure product compliance.
Sustainable solutions for environmental challenges
Pulp and paper mills use water and produce waste – the challenge is to achieve reductions on both of these fronts. The main role of the Environmental Research team is to ensure environmental compliance at all operations in the region and to add to the bottom line by saving energy and optimising processes. The scientists and engineers focus on water and effluent treatment and waste management among other things.
