The Aklaline Pulping Committee held its Spring meeting virtually June 14th and 15th, 2022, with 17 attendees from across the country participating. The group addressed Safety and Project Updates from each participant’s location and had a Q&A period where all commented on submitted questions, as well as an open-discussion roundtable.

The AP also moderates sessions at PaperWeek and members are invited to submit ideas of topics to be considered for the 2023 edition, including any topics of interest for webinars between now and then.

The Committee thanks those that participated and is now planning for its Fall (hopefully in-person) meeting. Mills interested in hosting should email the Chair – Mike Thorne. Feel free to reach out with any questions, concerns, or relevant feedback in the meantime.
