IPST-GT granted $100,000.
The total awarded by DOE in grants is $2.2 million for research and development projects to save energy in the pulp and paper industry. The research will focus on removing water from pulp in papermaking and determining the technical and commercial feasibility of next generation manufacturing concepts. Other DOE grants are:
* US$ 2 million in research funds has been awarded to Voith Paper of Appleton, Wisconsin, to design and build a new press technology to reduce the need for energy during paper drying by 30 percent. Voith Paper will contribute a 50% cost share to this research.
* North Carolina State University, Raleigh, North Carolina will receive approximately US$ 100,000 which will define a next generation pulping process that has the potential of achieving higher yields and reduced energy consumption. NCSU will contribute a 44% cost share to this research project.
