Innovative Green Papers

Research in this area will develop profitable, specialty pulp and paper grades that combine Canadian fibre with new manufacturing technologies.

More specifically, NSERC encourages researchers to develop:

  • fine papers in combination with Canadian softwood chemical pulps to compete with tropical, short-rotation species grown in other countries;
  • mechanical pulp and paper grades from Canadian species that are cost-competitive; and
  • ‘Green chemistry’ solutions such as the pre-treatment of wood chips.

We are currently building this network through a consultative process. For more information, please consult our next workshop or contact us.
