  8. 8. What the scholarship meant to Russell:•Financial support, allowing me to not have to work while I was takingclasses•Motivation to maintain a higher grade point average•Networking with life long friends who chose the same career pathHow it helped him prepare for the industry:•Pulp & Paper course work built the foundation of my technical knowledge•Combining class/lab work with co-op program experience gave me acompetitive advantage over most engineers•Opportunity to learn about the industry that I ultimately chose tobuild a career in•Laid the groundwork for a successful career in a challenging industryRussell HarrisProfileAuburnPulp & Paper Foundation
  9. 9. Paper and Bio-ResourceSpecializationCHEN 3090 Intro to Pulp & Paper TechnologyCHEN 5110 Pulp and Paper EngineeringCHEN 4100 Pulp & Paper Processing LabAuburnPulp & Paper Foundation
  10. 10. CHEN 3090Course Description: An introductory course on the technology ofpulp and paper manufacturing with emphasis on raw materials,pulping, bleaching, paper making, coating and environmental control.For students with no previous formal pulp and paper background.Course Objectives: To introduce the student to the various operationsinvolved in the manufacture of pulp and paper starting from rawmaterial. Includes raw materials, pulping, bleaching, papermaking,surface sizing, coating and printing.AuburnPulp & Paper Foundation
  11. 11. CHEN 4100Overall Course Objectives1. For the students to become familiar with the fundamental unitoperations involved in the manufacture of pulp and paper2. For the students to become familiar with the use of pulp & paperlaboratory testing procedures and TAPPI standards.3. For the students to have developed their abilities in technicalcommunications.AuburnPulp & Paper Foundation
  12. 12. CHEN 4100 (continuation)Each course in the CHEN curriculum has an associated set of course outcomes. These course-specificresults, when summed over the entire curriculum, result in the successful completion of the department’sprogram outcomes. In the case of CHEN 4100 these outcomes are:Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:1.Work in teams to plan and conduct experiments involving pulp and paper manufacturing processes.2.Identify fibers using optical microscope and fiber staining techniques.3.Measure the freeness and consistency of pulp samples.4.Perform kraft cooks. Identify the major cooking variables and the effect of these variables on pulp yield andkappa number.5.Perform kappa number tests and estimate pulp yields from typical kraft cooks.6.Perform a three stage bleaching sequence. Measure pulp brightness and viscosity. Identify the major bleachingvariables and the effect of these variables on pulp brightness and viscosity.7.Perform beater runs and develop a beater curve.8.Make Tappi standard handsheets from pulp beaten to different freeness levels.9.Measure the following paper properties: basis weight, caliper, burst index, tensile index, tear index, airpermeability, brightness and opacity.10.Develop freeness vs. property curves.11.Make Tappi standard handsheets with different levels of filler addition and retention aids. Calculate singlepass filler retention for different cases. Identify the effect of filler levels and retention aids on the paperproperties.12.Prepare laboratory reports that clearly convey background information, experimental procedures, results andconclusions according to the report format.13.Apply safety laboratory practices by adhering to safe work guidelines, adhering to specific lab operatingprocedures and adhering to personal protection policies.14.Maintain a lab notebook and record data according to given guidelines.AuburnPulp & Paper Foundation
  13. 13. CHEN 5110Overall Course ObjectivesThis course is designed to give senior levelstudents a quantitative understanding of the chemical andengineering principles involved in the manufacture of pulp andpaper. By the end of the semester students will be proficient in theperformance of process engineering calculations as applicable topulp and paper systems.AuburnPulp & Paper Foundation
  14. 14. CHEN 5110 (continuance)Each course in the CHEN curriculum has an associated set of course outcomes. These course-specificresults, when summed over the entire curriculum, result in the successful completion of thedepartment’s program outcomes. In the case of CHEN 5110 these outcomes are:Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:1. Perform a material balance on a typical wood yard.2.
