    Ralph Lunn - Mill Champion


    Ralph Lunn
    Senior Process Engineer at Zellstoff Celgar Limited Partnership

    Ralph is a Mechanical Engineering graduate who started his career at Crestbrook Forest industries in Skookumchuck B.C. (now Tembec) as a Project Engineer. He did this for 3 years before going back to school to complete his Masters degree in Pulp and Paper from McGill in 1992. Upon graduation, he started as a Process Engineer for Celgar Pulp in Castlegar B.C.

    While his work at Celgar has seen him in several different departments, including technical, engineering, operations, and management, the majority of his time has been in the technical or process group. He has always enjoyed the problem-solving aspect of being a Process Engineer, and the wide variety of learning that continues in every area. An important part of the job for him is good documentation of work done; this is evident in the technical papers he has written and presented over the years on topics such as bleach plant process optimization and washing, off-grade analysis and identification, energy improvements, and the chlorine dioxide plant.

    Ralph feels that some of best opportunities to learn from others has come through various PAPTAC communities – the Bleaching Community and the Alkaline Pulping Community in particular. Connections made here have continued for many years, and have been valuable from both a technical and personal perspective. More recently Ralph became involved in the PACWEST Committee, and served as chair for the conference held at Sun Peaks in 2010. As PAPTAC mill champion, he tries to ensure that people know about and attend the various committees and conferences, as he feels they offer great value.
