The Alkaline Pulping Committee is comprised of people from production and technical departments in pulp and paper mills. Membership is augmented with a sprinkling of individuals who represent research and development as well as suppliers to our industry. Our key focus is to help our members assist their respective operations and ultimately satisfy customers' needs.

We do this through open discussion, based on real life practice, on:

  • Raw material and (novel) equipment use
  • Optimizing employee performance
  • Environmental diligence
  • Quality assurance

Alkaline Pulping has always been an active and important committee within PAPTAC. Several individuals involved in kraft mills around the country look to it as an effective and valuable forum to network with their peers in the industry and discuss operations optimization, industry challenges and product quality as well as to share ideas on issues related to workforce, training and management in the sector.
