UBC partnership with Lee & Man Paper looks toward the new bio-economy

The Pulp and Paper Centre at UBC recently entered into a research partnership with paper-manufacturing giant Lee & Man of Hong Kong. The research is intended to create new technologies and processes to convert fast-growing, renewable bio-mass into high-value chemicals and materials by optimizing and improving product quality in its current bio-conversion process to make it more cost-effective. Lee & Man has provided over $500,000 in support of the partnership, which will continue through the end of 2015.
