Pulp & Paper Canada is honored to be able to present the story of another of Paprican’s milestones. The year 2000 marks the 75th anniversary of world renowned Pulp & Paper Research Institute of Canada. In previous years (1975 and 1985), PULP & PAPER CANADA told the story of Paprican’s 50th and 60th anniversaries. The focus then was on the past and present. This time, we will look ahead. The following pages will show what the Institute has planned to help keep the Canadian pulp and paper industry modern, competitive and in line with future demands. Separate chapters will deal with:
Technologies now being delivered by Paprican;
How Paprican provides value to its Member Companies;
The growth of its Allied Industry partners program including government partnerships and its expanding world partnerships program;
The education programs offered in conjunction with many Canadian universities;
The benefits its new facilities will bring to the industry.
To complement our coverage, a technical paper by Ron Crotogino on Paprican’s new pilot paper machine is also being published. This is the machine featured on our cover.
We open with interviews with Joseph Wright, president of Paprican, and Pierre Monahan (president and ceo of Alliance Forest Products) who is chairman of Paprican’s Board of Directors. They give their views on Paprican’s future and where they believe the new business plan will lead the Institute.
