About

We offer a master degree in Paper Science and Engineering at the SUNY - College of Environmental Science and Forestry. This study area deals with colloidal phenomena in the papermaking process, in particular the interaction among fibers, fine particles, polymeric additives, and electrolytes in stock preparation and sheet formation. 

Overview

At the SUNY - College of Environmental Science and Forestry we offer a master degree in Paper Science and Engineering. 

Key Features 

  • Research topics fall into two categories: fundamental colloidal behavior of particles and behavior of paper stock on the paper machine. In the latter, extensive use is made of pilot plant facilities in Walters Hall. 
  • Current research projects include non-sulfur pulping, biopulping, chemicals and energy as byproducts, effects of wet pressing and press drying on sheet properties, pulping of tropical woods, and computer simulation and control of papermaking. Supporting this work is an experimental pulp and paper mill with two complete paper machines, a pressurized refiner and extensive auxiliary equipment.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Reaction mechanisms and kinetics
  • Applications of biotechnology
  • Lignin and carbohydrate chemistry
  • Chemicals from wood and pulping residues
  • Energy from wood and pulping residues
  • Chemical modification in mechanical pulping
  • Catalytic and activation effects
