Paper360 - September/October 2016 - 26

INNOVATION: THE LONG VIEW Innovation is a long-term investment. That's the unanimous response from research faculty leaders when Paper360° posed this question: How can the industry as a whole foster research innovation? Dr. Gary M. Scott, SUNY: "By understanding the multifaceted mission and long-term mission of the university. We are not solely focused on immediate research results; we also provide engineering and management training for future researchers and leaders in the industry. An investment in the training of Ph.D. students today is a long-term investment: their training now may lead to major discoveries later in their careers." Dr. Stephen Kelley, NCSU: "The answer may be predicated on a universityindustry liaison that goes beyond a traditional directed funding paradigm. Research innovation needs degrees of freedom (e.g., a long event horizon) that go beyond short-term demands of industry. Finally, strong relationships must be cultivated that allow for true collaboration by regular meetings and close partnerships." Dr. Shri Ramaswamy, University of Minnesota: "By taking a longer-term approach to research and funding longer-term research projects and graduate thesis research. While this has decreased in the US, it is our understanding that in Europe both industry and government have continued to invest in such research efforts. With decreased long-term funding for research and graduate students, it has become more difficult to explore unproven areas and gather the necessary preliminary data in new, high-risk areas." Chris Luettgen, associate director, pulp and paper, RBI: "It is urgent to maintain the technical and technological expertise the industry needs to realize its opportunities. This strategic priority cannot be fulfilled without private philanthropy. Companies can endow a professorship of the practice in a Core Technology Area, in order to attract talented industry technologists. (We need) more interaction and two-way-conversation with faculty or leadership at research institutions to influence the direction of the work." Mike Roberts, executive director, Washington Pulp and Paper Foundation: "Research, especially that which is more fundamental in nature, follows funding. If industry-wide consortiums such as Agenda 2020 and AF&PA can define research questions and then fund research on a competitive basis, paper and bioresource programs will respond to a request for proposals. Individual companies that may have reduced their internal research and technical support capabilities can look to paper and bioresource programs to build relationships that support investigation into company-specific questions. A long-term technical relationship benefits both the company, through access to technical talent, and the academic program, through understanding the relevance of the industrial marketplace." The Engineering Challenge at the 2016 TAPPI Student Summit. A few of the department's key research projects include: water treatment and remediation using a bioreactor, developing a sustainable bioenergy system: Paulownia production for fuel, technology enhancement of hot water extraction, utilization of wood extracts and aspen wood pulps, and exploring assessment of 3D nanostructure and topochemical distributions of lignocellulosic biomass. UNIVERSITY OF MAINE, ORONO, ME School of Forest Resources The University of Maine Pulp and Paper Foundation For 66 years, the University of Maine Pulp and Paper Foundation has been a model of successful partnership between academia and industry. The UMPPF awards full and partial tuition scholarships to more than 91 UMaine engineering students. In addition to about US$600,000 annually in scholarships, the UMPPF also contributes nearly US$200,000 to UMaine in the form of student programming, recruiting support, graduate student stipends, and faculty research support in pulp and paper, as well as the facilitation of the Consider Engineering program for high school juniors. Within UMaine's School of Forest Resources, research facilities include the Center for Research on Sustainable Forests and the Forest Bioproducts Research Institute, an interdisciplinary research initiative that seeks to create the building blocks of a "bioeconomy" in Maine and around the world. 26 UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, ST. PAUL, MN Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering The Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering has historically directed significant effort toward pulp and paper and forest products research. Over the past 10 years-with decreased funding from industry and funding agencies for research related to pulp and paper and forest products- more faculty have directed their efforts toward Paper360º SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2016 future opportunities in integrated biorefining, including bio-based materials, chemicals, and energy from lignocellulosic biomass. Recent/ongoing research efforts include: development of additives to improve kraft pulping, replacement of silicates in pulp bleaching, 3D structure of paper and board and its relationship to properties and performance during manufacturing and end-use applications, 3D structure of biomass at micro and nanoscale and its role in biomass conversion, biocomposites using nanocrystalline www.tappi.org http://www.tappi.org
