FB Graduate Student Seminar Series: OCC – Sustainable Raw Materials for Paper Industries

March 10 | 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Please join Kazi Arafat, FB student under the supervision of Dr. Pal, who will be talking about OCC: Sustainable Raw Materials for Paper Industries

Abstract: Recycled paper is the most popular raw material worldwide paper production in paper industries. Old corrugated container (OCC) pulp contributes a significant portion of recycled paper. With the growing environmental and economic concerns, the demand and consumption of paper-based packaging are increasing day by day. The shares of OCC, thus, increased in solid waste. As it loses some of its surface and mechanical properties due to recycling at least once, upcycling OCC fiber is imperative for waste management and as a source of sustainable raw materials for the paper industry.

Participation will be via Zoom only.
