Micro and Nano Technology


Paper Manufacturing


Author- Dr. Mahendra Patel,

(37 chapters, 530 pages)

Foreword for the book written by:

Prof. Rene Van Grieken, Editor-in-Chief, X-ray Spectrometry and Director, University of Antwerp, Belgium.;

Congratulation letter by: 

Prof. Dominique Lachenal, International School of Paper, Grenoble, France.

Book with New Concepts/ Technology including multi-disciplinary subject, techno-commercial aspects and latest R & D information.   

This book explains for the first time authentically the applications of Nanotechnology in Pulp and Paper manufacturing. Many existing processes and technologies are explained to have bearings on micro and nano phenomena and concepts. On reading this book, you will be astonished and tempt to initiate interpreting and applying everything in terms of micro and nanotechnology. The author invites interactive discussions to further knowledge on Nanotechnology.     

Nanotechnology and Concepts

It is high time that you understand what is nanotechnology and its scope in pulp and paper manufacturing, get acquainted with the  Definitions, Scope in the industry and different Concepts/ Mechanisms concerned with Micro to nano technology. (Ch.1-10).

Nano Concepts in Raw Materials

Wood, trees (Genetically modified lignin-deficient trees), agro-residues and recycled fibre (stickies etc) have bearing with micro structures.

Nano Concepts in Fibreline

Mechanisms in Modern Pulping and Bleaching ( ECF/TCF) technologies are explained in terms of micro and nano phenomena (Ch.15, 16).

Nano Concepts in Wet-end and Paper-making

Micro particle and micro polymer technologies for better retention and drainage properties at the wet end are the first application of nanotechnology. Micro and nano size high-performance engineered minerals and oxides imparting superior optical, surface and printability properties to the paper, are cited. It covers also Paper Machinery manufacturing namely rolls and fabrics with a micro and a nano base (Ch.17-20).

Coating, Packaging, Specialty Papers and Printing

Section 3 covers nanotechnology in coating, packaging, printing and in specialty papers. Production of intelligent wood and composites and packaging materials for security, counterfeiting, safety and antimicrobial purpose; New types of antibacterial paper, tissue paper and newsprint have recently been produced using nanotechnology (Ch.21-26). 
Nanotechnology in Energy and Environment

Section 4 covers nanotechnology in production techniques, environmental and in energy issues including Pulp mill as a biorefinery, wind and solar energy (Ch.27, 28).

Production Technologies and Systems

Topics covered here are R & D, Economics, Roadmap, Electron Microscopy, X-ray Spectrometry, STM, AFM, Micro techniques with Online quality measurements using micro sensors and Future of Nanotechnology (Ch.29-37).

Sir, We are security paper manufacturers in India as approved by RBI-IBA. We have a 1400 mm mould security paper making machine in which mould water mark embedded with visible and invisible security fibers,plus thread insertion can be given.Now we wish to go for nano technology as per your book for giving additional security against forgery and giving exclusiveness of the document belonging to a customer by scanning it. Please guide us in this matter. Thanks.R S MANI www.geminigraphicsindia.com
Thanks Dr. Patel for offering your wonderful publication. We already have couple of your publications in our technical library. Our people always speak high about your books. We have asked our imports department to process for it.

Wishing you all the best.

Dear Dr Patel.

It was nice meeting you in the Paper Asia conference. Although your paper was brief but very interesting in its core value. Nano technology is definitely new in the context of pulp & paper industry and there is tremendous scope for its application .

I hope that the industry will take more and more advantage of this technology particularly from the learned people like you. Please share with us the application part of this technology in various cellulose derivatives and new product development through this technology.

It will be my pleasure to be in contact with you in coming future.

Best Regards.

Thanks Dr. Patel;

We have initiated request to our imports department for this book and hopefully you will get formal order very soon. We have found you books extremely useful and worth buying.

Thanks & Regards

Dear Dr Patel,

Many thanks for your contact. I will place the following in the next edition of Paper Technology, alongside another book I have been sent for review:

Operations and recycling in Paper Mills with Micro and Nano Concepts, M. Patel, (Book), 2012. Obtainable from the author (industrypaper@yahoo.co.uk), US$150 + postage.

The author has just contacted us with news of this new publication. (We reviewed his two other book sin November 2010). In due course we will endeavour to obtain a copy of this new work for review.

As regards your previous books, I recently used your ‘Micro and Nano Technology’ book when writing a couple of chapters for a new book on packaging technology which will be published by Wiley Blackwell this year. I went into very little depth on the subject, but referenced your book as the current most up to date reference work on the subject in the paper area. Hopefully that will increase knowledge of the book, and lead to increased sales. (The Wiley book is aimed at Europe and USA so your book will get good coverage).

Finally, please note I am changing ISP soon and will lose the demon email address. I can be contacted in future using either of these addresses:

daven12@zoho.com or editor@pita.co.uk

Once again very many thanks for contacting me with news of your latest book.

Yours sincerely

Dr. Patel

Please inform me the procedure for purchasing your book "Micro and Nano Technology in Paper Manufacturing".

As I understand it the cost is $120.00 plus $20.00 shipping charges, for a total of $140.00.

I would like to get any input you may have in how Nanotechnology Paper may be able to benefit my company. My company converts paper, twisting it into a cord, folding it into a flat then weaving on looms giving it the appearance of wicker. Refer to my web page www.buffaloweaver.com to see our process and applications.

Some thoughts I have are that a paper with a high tensile strength, you would be able to use for chairs in the seating and back rest area that would hold up to the weight requirements of an individual, eliminating additional metal supports. Possibly could use a woven paper to replace fiberglass cloths currently in use for wind turbine blades, marine industry, aeronautics, ballistics... Essentially an alternative to fiberglass cloths.

Look forward to your response.
