Paper Making Laboratory

Paper Making LabARC launched a full-service laboratory that provides comprehensive product development expertise to Alberta's pulp and paper industry. ARC's new papermaking laboratory will be used to help members of Alberta's Mechanical Pulping Consortium develop new products and improve existing products. 

The addition of the laboratory enables ARC's pulp and paper group to model all the processes of a fully operational mechanical pulping mill. By simulating systems and conditions found in Alberta's mills, the group can use their expertise to help industry clients address process and product development obstacles. This allows mills to develop and test new products without disrupting production in their own plants. 

The papermaking laboratory was funded in part by the Governments of Canada and Alberta through the Western Economic Partnership Agreement.
