While our other centres are responsible for dissolving wood pulp (DWP) developments and tree breeding, the Sappi Technology Centre in Pretoria is where all of the pulping and bleaching work for the global Sappi business is carried out. It’s also home to the regional research and development for our paper, packaging, chemistry and environmental requirements.
The Sappi Technology Centre is accredited by the South African National Accreditation System (SANAS) for specific chemical and physical test methods – offering peace of mind to our customers and a guaranteed level of quality.
