Australian Pulp and Paper Institute (APPI)
APPI provides world class technology based on training and research for the pulp and paper industry. Since its inception in 1989, APPI has trained many engineering and science graduates who are now in senior positions in the pulp and paper industry. APPI is supported by the Australian Paper Industry as well as Monash University. In the next few years, the Australian Pulp and Paper Industry will invest over AU $3 billion. Two pulp mills, two paper machines and many major upgrades/rebuild are underway or being designed. This massive capital influx combined with market globalisation creates new employment opportunities for Australian engineers and scientists in pulp and paper.
APPI provides post-graduate training, coursework and research, for engineers and scientists in pulp, paper, printing and related industries. APPI has an extensive short course program in pulping, papermaking and the science of printing, run in conjunction with Appita. APPI is an integral part of the Department of Chemical Engineering at Monash University.
The APPI Research centre is the Bioresource Processing Research Institute of Australia (BioPRIA).
APPI staff were recently awarded a A$1.15 million dollar ARC Linkage grant jointly funded by the Australian Research Council and the Australian paper industry. We still have available two postgraduate positions funded by this grant
