intouch | ASSOCIATION NEWS Young Professionals "Top 20 Under 30" Winners, Group III Congratulations to this third group of winners of the Young Professionals' "Top 20 Under 30" contest. The final five winners will appear in the November/December issue of Paper360°. Sudip Neupane (28), is innovation lead at MWV, where as part of the MWV Blister Team, he helped develop a time of manufacture test to proactively identify the performance of hot cups in the market. "Consumers are getting more aware of the importance of paper and its recycle/green features," says Neupane. "Globally, the future of the pulp and paper industry looks even better, with a significant growth in market share." Caleb Sargent (27), senior boiler process engineer at MWV, is working with an engineering consulting firm to oversee a mill improvement project that provides a lower temperature cooling water source to the recovery weakwash coolers. "I believe the continued globalization of the paper industry will increase competitive pressures and also allow for growth opportunities," says Sargent. Jesse Shade (25), process engineer (REACH) at International Paper, has worked on capital projects to improve process performance of the mill, specifically aspects of the IP Recycle Plant's yield. She believes the future of the industry will "[continue] to grow in areas such as containerboard and hygiene products, and decline in others such as printing and writing grades." Marshelle Slayton (24), process engineer at Sonoco, is currently working on her Lean 6Sigma Black Belt with Sonoco on a project goal of reducing wastewater treatment costs by 15 percent. "As the focus on recycling product and reducing emissions and waste grows, the paper industry will shift also," says Slayton. "New equipment developments to allow for retaining recycled fiber strength and integration of non-woody fibers will be pertinent for a strong future presence." John Sly (26), paper mill shift supervisor at RockTenn's Tacoma mill, volunteers for the Paper Mill Safety Committee and as a Safe Start Program Trainer works to reduce and eliminate safety hazards. "In the next 20 years, I see it as a necessity for the industry to continue to evolve its products to meet global demand while creating new products that challenge the conventional uses of pulp and paper," says Sly.
