demonstrated electroflocculation process on pilot scale for reduction of color
from bleach effluent and agro-residue black liquors.
completed pilot plant trials on pulping & bleaching of Malaysian Kenaf to achieve
a brightness of +80% ISO.
¤ Successfully completed CPPRI-CTP (France)
collaborative project on “understanding & Control of Pitch & Deposits in papermaking”.
