A new program was launched at Durham College in Southern Ontario to help meet the demand for technically trained individuals in the Pulp & Paper Industry. Graduates will be well equipped to obtain employment in the service industry as well as directly in the processing sector of the industry across Canada, United States as well as internationally.

The Paper Process and Recycling diploma program is three years long and will have a summer placement component after second year. The program has a strong emphasis on paper processing including production theory, quality control and environmental control strategies, as well as recycling of post consumer products. The program also contains components of water pollution control, hydraulics and thermodynamics. There will be a strong emphasis on field trips to modern production facilities. Hands on experience will be gained through a number of highly relevant labs and field placements.
