EFPG Days 2005  "Last developments in pulp bleaching - Ozone bleaching - Chemical modification of fibres" (in French)

    Previous news Liste des nouvelles Next news

The fourth session of EFPG Days will focus on ozone bleaching, on the improvement of chlorine dioxide bleaching, and on chemical modification of fibres. EFPG (École Française de Papeterie et des Industries Graphiques) organizes this international event on October 11th and 12th, 2005 during the IP exhibition in Grenoble at Alpexpo.
As well as in the previous sessions, this event will present the state of the art and the lastest EFPG research results on these specific topics.

"EFPG Days" : an event that attracts every year a large and international audience

More information...

The two first sessions were devoted to bleaching, yield gain and fibre characterisation, in 2002 and 2003, and the third session concerned the latest developments in printing (2004). The fourth session of this international event will focus on latest developments in ozone bleaching, in the improvement of chlorine dioxide bleaching, and in chemical modification of fibres. The lectures, realized by EFPG researchers and also by some the EFPG industrial partners, will be in english.

The subjects of this seminar will focus on :

    the bleaching and the ozone treatment of the chemical and mechanical pulps fibres,
  the ways to improve the chlorine dioxide bleaching,
  the chemical modification of fibres in order to improve the paper properties or to create new uses,
  and the potentialities in relation with the use of vegetal nanofillers.

The content of the lectures will be specially organized to fit an audience of industry people interested in pulp bleaching and fibre chemical modification issues, as well as suppliers willing to know about new opportunities for their products or equipments.
