As Associate Director for RBI, Pulp & Paper, my concentration lies in the more traditional member companies of the former Institutes of Paper Chemistry and Paper Science & Technology, ensuring our research and services are focused on their evolving needs. We have a rich history in lignocellulosic research, spanning more than 85 years from our roots in Appleton, WI to our move to Georgia Tech. Our name change in 2014 reflected our continued commitment not only to expand, but enhance and adapt our capabilities and technologies to encompass the 21st century opportunities and challenges facing the industry. At the same time, our foundation remains committed to traditional pulp and paper and in operational excellence. This is exemplified in our close ties with Agenda 2020 Roadmaps. The industry continues to rely on RBI - and the cross-disciplinary capabilities of Georgia Tech - to deliver breakthrough research.
