The University of British Columbia’s Pulp and Paper Centre is the beneficiary of a new grant program funded by NorskeCanada, the largest producer of paper products in BC.
The NorskeCanada Grants Program will support research for the advancement and development of pulp and paper engineering. Each $60,000 grant will fund a multi-year project advancing papermaking and engineering technologies specific to processing BC coastal fibre into high-value paper products.
All faculties associated with the Centre will be eligible for the grant. Each year, in coordination with NorskeCanada, a committee in the Pulp and Paper Centre will select a research project to receive the three-year grant. NorskeCanada will also provide matching in-kind support.
The recipient of the 2003 grant was Professor Peter Englezos, a chemical engineer whose research focuses on papermaking chemistry and technology. He intends to use the funds to support a research initiative involving the optimization of additives for high-value paper products.
