Salient Features
 

The Department of Paper Technology of IIT Roorkee is actively involved in diverse areas of research relevant to Indian industrial context because of its multidisciplinary faculty. The areas of active research have been fiber characterization, identification and evaluation of new fibrous pulping raw materials, identification of chloro-organic compounds in waste waters, color reduction of effluents, evaluation of recycling potential of pulps, deinking studies, paper surface characterization and printability, enzyme production and applications, modeling and simulation of pulp and papermaking operations, system closure, corrosion of steels under varying process conditions, DCS, specialty papers, natural fibers polymer composites, polymer synthesis, biotechnology, tissue engineering, colloid and interface science. The research activities are being diversified further with starting of the new courses and joining of new faculty members. The R&D capabilities of the department are further enhanced due to its close association and physical proximity with CPPRI (Central Pulp and Paper Research Institute), SPM (Star Paper Mills), and IPPTA (Indian Pulp and Paper Technical Association).
