The Sustaining Members Group will again sponsor the New Technology Session at the PAPTAC 88th Annual Meeting to be held at the Palais des Congrs in Montreal from January 28 to 31, 2002.
The object is to allow Sustaining Members to present brief sales-oriented papers which, because of their commercial nature, do not fit into other sessions at the meeting. The theme of the session is new developments relating to all aspects of pulp and paper production. The paper may be presented by:
a Sustaining Member company;
the member’s client;
the member and client jointly.
For more information, please contact the committee chairman, Dieter Kaschel, Nash Engineering at 302-459-3900 or e-mail dieter.kaschel@nasheng.com. The deadline for receipt of submissions is September 7, 2001.

Norske Skog Canada will take a further 15 400 tonnes of market pulp and 5 500 tonnes of newsprint out of production during the third quarter to keep inventory levels in line. This will bring total maintenance and market-related pulp curtailment to 31 000 tonnes for the thread quarter and 99 000 tonnes for the three fiscal quarters in 2001.
