Pulp and Paper Research Division (PPRD)

Pulp and Paper Research Division (PPRD) is one of the oldest divisions of BCSIR Laboratories, Dhaka which plays a crucial role in the development of pulping and papermaking technology for the pulp and paper industries in Bangladesh from its beginning. Many efforts have been given over the past decades to find out high yield biomass for pulp production as well as easy propagation for forestry. This research division is mandated to utilize locally available bioresouces in producing pulp, paper, biochemicals, and biomaterials. Scientists of PPRD are going to develop a green pulping process from agricultural residues. Moreover, PPRD is developing human resources through supervising PhD and MS students of different universities of Bangladesh. PPRD collaborates with pulp, paper and allied industries for ensuring the quality of their products through analytical and consulting services.
