“We are now starting up the most state-of-the-art, university-based LC refining facility in the world,” said Dr. James Olson, associate head of the University of British Columbia’s Pulp & Paper Centre. “We are grateful to Aikawa for donating this equipment and being long-term partners with the university.”

Aikawa and its subsidiary AFT (Advanced Fiber Technologies) donated the key process equipment – a state-of-the-art single-disc refiner plus a full complement of FINEBAR® refiner plates – to the University of British Columbia so that the university’s Pulp & Paper Centre could perform research in the area of low consistency (LC) refining to improve the energy efficiency of mechanical pulp production.
