Message from the President
Shifting fields of the products.
Securing human resources.
For the continuous development of the Pulp and Paper Industry.
For further strengthening of pulp and paper manufacturing technology, we continue to provide places and opportunities to discuss the latest technology by holding seminars, the research conference and the annual meeting.
Regarding pulping and papermaking, new basic seminars have been set up in addition to the basic instrumentation course. We continue to make efforts that contribute to improving the capabilities of the field engineers.
For shifting fields of the products, we promote the exchange of technical information and networking in the fields of CNF, plastic alternatives, biomass utilization, household paper, energy saving and greenhouse gases. As part of this, we hold a new seminar specializing in household paper.
At the research conference, through presentations from universities and companies, we provide places and opportunities where industry engineers, university officials, and students can meet and discuss.
