First winners of Metso Tissue Technology Award for energy-saving innovations selected

In line with its ambition to provide sustainable solutions for the tissue making industry Metso established a Tissue Technology Award. The purpose is to promote university students' or scientists' work to develop environmentally sound products applicable to the tissue making processes. The first winners have now been selected by a panel of jurors.
"Very thorough work was conducted to go through all the applications and we ended up with two innovations of equally high quality. Therefore we have decided that the first award will be split between two winners", reveals Anders Björn, Vice President, Tissue Machines technology unit, Metso.
The total prize of USD 25,000 will be shared between Alina Hagelqvist, PhD student at Karlstad University, Sweden, and Jingsong Tao, PhD and associate professor at State Key Laboratory of Pulp and Paper Engineering at South China University of Technology.
Alina Hagelqvist is awarded for her work focused on sludge wastewater treatment in the pulp and paper industry. The work shows the potential of improved utilization of sludge for biogas production by optimized solid retention time in the biological process.
Jingsong Tao is awarded for his extensive work in the development of models and methods for improved energy utilization for the Chinese paper industry. Jingsong Tao has applied his extensive experience and has shown a genuine interest for sustainable development.
The winners were announced at the Tissue World Conference, held in Barcelona, Spain, on March 19.
