NSERC Environmental Design Engineering Chair
Ecole Polytechnique (Montreal) launched its renewed NSERC Environmental Design Engineering Chair on Sept. 15 which is entitled Process Integration in the Pulp and Paper Industry. The renewed Chair program focuses on multidisciplinary systems analysis seeking to identify strategies and design methodologies for forestry companies wanting to transform successfully to the biorefinery. The Chair was the first of its kind established in Canada, and it boasts support from four forestry companies, as well as Natural Resources Canada. Chairholder Paul Stuart said: “We feel privileged to have the opportunity to continue our unique research program for a second term. We take this responsibility seriously — and want to help our partner forestry companies mitigate the substantial risks associated with biorefinery implementation.”
