Are you a final year chemical engineering student or a chemical engineering graduate? Are you interested in pursuing a Masters degree through the PAMSA Bursary and Research Programme?

PAMSA oversees all research and innovation-related projects on behalf of its members, in partnership with a number of South African universities and institutions.

Some 60% of all trees planted for commercial use are used by the pulp and paper industry, yet a large proportion of biomass is left behind on harvesting (branches, leaves, bark).

By re-engineering and optimising processes, the South African forestry and forest product sector seeks to extract the full benefit of the tree and other by-products from pulp and papermaking.

South African pulp and paper mills can also use their raw materials, process waste and processes to make bio-based additives, chemicals, plastics and fuels.
