Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

TAPPI is pleased to announce integration of Progress in Paper Recycling (PPR) into TAPPI Journal (TJ). Founded in 1991 by TAPPI Fellow Dr. Mahendra Doshi, PPR has a history of covering major innovations in paper recycling technology. Under the guidance of Dr. Doshi, PPR grew in parallel with the escalating paper recovery rate during the ensuing years.

"PPR has provided our industry with a greater understanding of recycling technology," remarked Larry N. Montague, TAPPI President and CEO. "We are extremely grateful to Dr. Doshi for his efforts and for allowing TAPPI to carry on the tradition through TAPPI Journal."

In 2007, Dr. Doshi generously donated PPR to TAPPI, and it has been published in parallel with TJ ever since. Going forward, exclusive PPR content highlighting new ideas and technologies in recycling will appear periodically in TJ using the distinctive PPR logo.

In addition, TAPPI welcomes Dr. Carl Houtman, to the TJ Editorial Board. Dr. Houtman is a research chemical engineer with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory (FPL), in Madison, Wis. At FPL, Dr. Houtman conducts recycling research, as well as research in process development, including biorefineries. As the current editor of PPR, he joins the TJ editorial board as the two journals combine. Dr. Doshi continues on the TJ editorial board as well. "We are excited to expose the TJ audience to additional research from the recycling community through PPR content, as well as the expert input of Dr. Carl Houtman and Dr. Doshi," said Monica Shaw, Editorial Director of TAPPI Journal. "Their input will help solidify TJ's position as the top research publication in the forest products and associated industries, with a strong impact factor based on a growing number of citations from the academic community.
