The Pulp – the rise and fall of an industry
By ALLAN JAMIESON
This book is a great read for anyone with experience in the Australian pulp and paper industry and it will also please those who want to understand the genesis of Burnie as a major rural town.
Allan presents a detailed account of the history of both the Burnie and Wesley Vale pulp and paper mills. It is detailed yet eminently readable in its discussion of the equipment, the technical and chemical processes, the management processes and above all of the people who were critical to the 70 year life of the mill. One gets a rarely glimpsed view of the decision making process within a manufacturing company from the production manager to the CEO to the Board. This is particularly interesting for anyone who has experienced the politicking that goes on at all levels in a large company/manufacturing unit.
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.
