Paper360 - September/October 2016 - 28

STUDENT CHAPTERS FOSTER CONNECTIONS To support academic programs, TAPPI and its local sections sponsor more than 30 student chapters on university campuses around the world. The chapters give students an opportunity to meet their peers, interact with future employers and industry veterans, tour facilities, and contribute to technical programs. Each student chapter offers its own array of activities and programs. Here are a few examples: At Auburn, student chapter activities are focused on outreach. This year, Auburn students spent a week at a local elementary school engaging in paper related activities with 4th and 5th graders (paper-making and paper-testing, respectively); in 2017 they hope to include 3rd graders in the mix. In May 2015, a group of UMaine TAPPI/PIMA student chapter members spent two weeks visiting papermaking and supplier facilities in Germany and Austria. UMaine students visited Finland in May 2013, and are planning a trip to Sweden in May 2017. The trips expose students to the world and keep them informed about new technologies. Miami University has more than 100 students active in TAPPI student chapter activities, which include mill or plant tours, guest speakers, team building exercises, and social activities. The chapter's service projects include the annual Girl Scout Day, when Scouts visit the department to see the pilot paper machine run and make their own handsheets. The University of Washington student TAPPI chapter-with the participation of the pilot lab manager and the Washington Pulp and Paper Foundation-has instituted a new program called "papermaking Friday." On most Fridays throughout the academic year, students gather and run the pilot paper machine to explore manufacture of unique papers from new blends of atypical fibers. TAPPI also sponsors an annual Student Summit that provides a technical program, a poster session, an Engineering Competition and networking opportunities. It also offers students the opportunity to gain valuable information about employment and career development within their field. The next TAPPI Student Summit will be held January 14, 2017, in Cincinnati, Ohio. For Student Summit program updates and a complete list of active TAPPI Student Chapters, visit www.tappi.org or contact Tanya Hickson at thickson@tappi.org. NCSU students Trevor Gamache and Heather Starkey at the 2016 TAPPI Student Summit. cellulose, lignin-based plastics, and process modeling and simulation of pulp and paperbased forest biorefineries. UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON, SEATTLE, WA School of Environmental and Forest Sciences Washington Pulp and Paper Foundation In addition to the investigation of new paper products from unique raw materials, research at UW is ongoing in the production of chemicals and fuels from bioresources using biological, chemical, and thermal pathways. New research also involves the production of unique carbon structures, such as carbon nanotubes, from sustainable bioresources. The Washington Pulp and Paper Foundation has supported the Bioresource Science and Engineering program with direct student scholarships, endowed funding for faculty positions, and establishing and supporting a comprehensive paper and bioresource pilot lab. Foundation members also provide mentoring for students, paid internships, and a path to full-time employment: more than 80 percent of graduates will go to work for one the foundation's nearly 50 members. UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN, STEVENS POINT, WI Department of Paper Science and Engineering UWSP Paper Science Foundation The UWSP Paper Science and Engineering Department has the resources to tackle many industrial research problems, especially in collaboration with the Wisconsin Institute for Sustainable Technology (WIST). The school's 28 process engineering laboratory also boasts the world's fastest student-run paper machine. Research areas pursued at UWSP PSE include paper formation, paper coating and converting, paper deinking evaluations, and nanocellulose; UWSP's Dr. Roland Gong is one of the few researchers attempting to produce nanocellulose thin film on a pilot scale. The department also has ongoing projects in biofuels production, including work led by Dr. Malek Alkasrawi studying conversion of paper mill sludge into biofuels and management of wastewater generated during the pulp production. WESTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY, KALAMAZOO, MI College of Engineering and Applied Sciences WMU Paper Technology Foundation At WMU's College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, four working pilot plants form the heart of the Paper Engineering Paper360º SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2016 program: a recycling pilot plant; a 24-in (610 mm) wide Fourdrinier paper machine; a pilot coater; and a printing pilot plant. WMU pilot plants have more than 50 years of collaborative history with the paper and allied industries. In addition, the pilot plants work with adjacent industry and customers of the industry. Most of WMU's pilot plant projects are done under non-disclosure agreements, so specific project information is not available; however, examples include collaborative work with Global Green Coalition for Resource Recovery, and evaluating repulpability and recyclability of a blend of post-consumer quick-service paper packaging material with specified fiber grades. Jon Kerr has recently retired from his position as executive director of the Pulp and Paper Foundation at Miami University. Jan Bottiglieri is editorial director of Paper360°; reach her at jbottiglieri@tappi.org. www.tappi.org http://www.tappi.org http://www.tappi.org
