Alkaline Pulping Committee

The Alkaline Pulping Committee is comprised of people members 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. The key focus is to help members assist their respective operations and ultimately satisfy customers’ needs. 

This is accomplished through open discussions, based on real life practices, on topics such as:

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