Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

The TAPPI Microbiology and Microbial Technology committee has announced the next webinar in its series on Microbes in Papermaking. "Microbial Control: Protecting Mineral Slurries and Papermaking Additives from Spoilage" will be held on October 16 at 12:00 p.m. EST. The webinar will be hosted by Sherrill Gammon, Sr. Research Scientist in the Microbiology Group of Kemira Chemicals, and will focus on the challenges presented when protecting additives in storage against the growth of ever changing microorganisms.

The preservation of mineral slurries and other additives for pulp and paper processes can be a challenge given the dynamic nature of the microorganisms, characteristics of individual biocides, and the chemistry of the products to be preserved. A review of microbial control in the world of white pigments and additives combining the tools of biocides, microbiology, monitoring, and housekeeping will be discussed to make the job of protecting these additives a little easier.

This webinar is offered at no charge. Additional details are available on the course website.
The Microbiology and Microbial Technology committee is an active committee and has produced a successful webinar series on this and other important topics. It also conducts presentations at TAPPI's PaperCon Conference being held next year in Nashville, Tenn., USA. April 27-30. For more information visit www.papercon.org.
