Pulp and Paper from Radiata Pinealt

Appita, in conjunction with Forest Research, New Zealand, has recently published the definitive Pulp and Paper from Radiata Pine, by Dr J Mervyn Uprichard.

This comprehensive, 480 page book describes and evaluates research data on radiata pine obtained over five decades, and describes some aspects of its industrial processing. Radiata Pine is the principal softwood of plantation forests in Australia,Chile and New Zealand and has the advantage of fast growth rate. It is widely used for sawn timber,  panelboard, pulp and paper and other products. There has been extensive investigation of its wood properties. The wide variation in wood quality within the tree influences the properties of pulp and paper products obtained from different levels in the stem. Optimal processing strategies for the species are outlined.

This Book shows that radiata pine has even more potential in the future. It has been elegantly shown that trees with tracheids, suitable dimensions for production of chemical and mechanical pulps with specific papermaking properties can be selected for use from the existing forest crop, and may be grown in future forests.

Available in hardcopy (480 pages, casebound) or CD ROM for AUD 400.00, delivered anywhere in the world.

Australian/New Zealand Standards

Australian/New Zealand Standards series 1301, Methods of test for pulp and paper has been developed by the Appita Testing Standards Committee (now known as Committee PK-019 of Standards Australia).

In recent times, Committee PK-019 has incorporated many ISO standards into the 1301 series and some of these have been ‘nationally modified’ to recognise the importance of procedures deemed especially relevant in Australia and New Zealand.

To order copies of standards in the series 1301 in Australia, contact Standards Australia at http://www.saiglobal.com or to order copies in New Zealand, contact Standards New Zealand at http://www.standards.co.nz
