To address the increasing production of unbleached kraft pulps worldwide for manufacturing paper-based packaging products to replace plastics, FPInnovations will be benchmarking both fully bleached and unbleached kraft pulps.
A series of tests used to characterize pulps and evaluate their paper, tissue, and packaging making potential will be conducted in FPInnovations ISO-accredited laboratory. The reports issued cover an array of bleached and unbleached kraft pulps criteria and properties. Any specific information pertaining to the mills—such as process conditions or type of end-use products for which the pulp is intended—will remain strictly confidential.
New for 2022, FPInnovations and Brian McClay Associates (BMA) partner to offer unique insights on bleached and bleached kraft pulps and on business intelligence.
