Ashland wins 2013 Breakthrough Technology award from Pulp & Paper International (PPI)

Ashland wins 2013 Breakthrough Technology award from Pulp & Paper International (PPI)











Ludwig Krapsch accepts award on behalf of Ashland Water Technologies from Rod Young, Chief Economic Advisor, RISI


WILMINGTON, Del. (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

Ashland Water Technologies’ Ludwig Krapsch, turned an idea for recovering and reusing starch in waste paper into an innovative program that improves sustainability and productivity for manufacturers of recycled paperboard. Less than three years after its launch, the company’s Biobond technology has become the go-to choice for a growing number of paperboard companies around the world.

The success of the innovation has earned Ashland the 2013 Breakthrough Technology of the Year award from Pulp & Paper International. The announcement was made during RISI’s Global Outlook Conference held earlier this month in Dubai. The annual PPI Awards, launched by RISI in 2009, recognize the achievements of companies, mills and individuals in the pulp and paper sector.

Ashland’s Biobond technology allows the high amounts of starch present in wastepaper furnish to be recovered and recycled along with the fiber. Historically, this has been a sizeable problem. Within the European paper industry, approximately 1.4 million tons of starch is lost each year as wastepaper is converted to new paper. Using Biobond technology helps ensure the majority of this starch is preserved, recycled and reused as a raw material. The process uses exclusive Ashland biocide and cationic polymer chemistries. The Biobond program increases yield, improves strength and eliminates the operational issues caused by degraded starch at the source. Additionally, the Biobond program reduces freshwater/starch consumption and levels of chemical oxygen demand (COD) levels in the effluent discharge, improving the sustainability of paper.

“It is exciting for Ashland to receive this award. I have enjoyed being a key player in the development of this game-changing program,” said Krapsch, director, pulp and paper, Ashland Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. “Because the Biobond program allows the papermaker to recycle fiber, filler, and the starch, customers have seen tremendous environmental and productivity benefits,” he continued.

“Using Biobond technology eliminates thousands of tons of carbon dioxide emissions due to reduced fiber and starch usage, helping to improve sustainability in the pulp and paper industry,” said Michael O’Byrne, global marketing director, packaging, Ashland. “Going forward, we will continue to collaborate with our customers to continue to bring practical innovations that truly make a difference.”

(NYSE: ASH), is a leading global producer of papermaking chemicals and a leading specialty chemical supplier to the pulp, mining, food and beverage, paper, chemical processing, general manufacturing, institutional and municipal markets.

Contractors Needed in Tennessee; US Federal Contractor Registration Helps Vendors Register in System for Award Management (SAM)

Contractors Needed in Tennessee; US Federal Contractor Registration Helps Vendors Register in System for Award Management (SAM)











US Federal Contractor Registration

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) December 26, 2013

US Federal Contractor Registration helps register businesses in Tennessee in order to be eligible for available government contracts on FedBizOpps. Contracting officers in Tennessee have already awarded over $ 988 million in contract awards in the state since the beginning of the 2013 fiscal year of the amount awarded nationwide, according to the USASpending website. Of the 19,663 contracts awarded, over half were awarded to small businesses.

However, in order to meet federal mandates that at least 23% of all contracting dollars be awarded to small businesses, more companies capable of handling these federal contracts must complete their SAM registration immediately. Every year, the federal government falls short of its procurement goal. In 2009, only 22% of the $ 442 billion set aside for small businesses was awarded, according to US Federal Contractor Registration. “There are not enough qualified, properly registered businesses,” said Dan Driscoll, treasurer at US Federal Contractor Registration. “If there were, the government wouldn’t have a problem meeting that goal.”

In order to bid on and work government contracts, businesses must obtain a DUNS number and must complete SAM registration. Successful contractors also develop aggressive government marketing plans which include the creation of a profile on government websites such as the SBA’s Dynamic Small Business Search and automated bid notifications to their email. US Federal Contractor Registration is strongly encouraging small businesses to ensure their registration is complete and correct so they don’t miss out on the new opportunities available in government contracting.

US Federal Contractor Registration is a third party registration firm with corporate offices in Orlando, FL that has helped thousands of businesses complete their SAM registration and bid on contracts. US Federal Contractor Registration pairs businesses with a dedicated case manager who helps them every step of the way, from initial registration to bidding on contracts. US Federal Contractor Registration’s BBB rating is A- thanks to the quality of their service and responsiveness to customers.
