(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.
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
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
trees (Genetically modified lignin-deficient trees), agro-residues and recycled
fibre (stickies etc) have bearing with micro structures.
Nano Concepts in Fibreline
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
and drainage properties at the wet end are the first application of
nanotechnology. Micro and nano size high-performance engineered minerals and
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
3 covers nanotechnology in coating, packaging, printing and in specialty
papers. Production of intelligent
composites and packaging materials for security, counterfeiting, safety and
types of antibacterial paper, tissue paper and newsprint have recently been
produced using nanotechnology (Ch.21-26).
Nanotechnology in Energy and Environment
4 covers nanotechnology in production techniques, environmental and in energy
issues including Pulp mill as a biorefinery, wind and solar energy (Ch.27,
Production Technologies and
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

Dear Dr. Patel,
Please send me a copy of your book. We are a small recycle mill located in central PA.
Dear Dr. Patel:
Good to know that you will be presenting at the TAPPI conference in Atlanta.
Is this the Nano conference in June? Please send me abstract of your presentation for my information.
At present I do not have plans to be in Atlanta in June.
I attended TAPPI PaperCon conference last month in Atlanta.
I met folks from Raj Chemicals. They spoke highly of you.
Let us stay in touch.
Dear Patel Sir,
Send me copy of this book. Also please send me invoice copy and bank details through email to make payment.

I am interested in buying your books-Operations and Recycling--------- and
Ceramics in paper manufacturing--------
Pl.let us know where from these books will be available and price of the books.
Namaste. Congratulation for your latest Book on recycling. It is really a commendable work, and hats off to your hard dedicated work. Probably you are the only technologist writing International standard books in India. With all the best wishes and regards.
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.
Nous avons bien réceptionnés votre ouvrage
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.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org), 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:
email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Once again very many thanks for contacting me with news of your latest book.

Dear Dr. Patel,
I am a rrsearcher from Universiti Teknologi Petronas, Malaysia.
I am interested to work further in production of nano minerals from the local resources. Can I get some advise from you on this matter? Further, how can I purchase a copy of yopur book?
I lokk forward to receiving a favorable from you soon.
Felicitation pour tes efforts scientifiques, de tes livres sur la mineralogie et le Nanotechnologie. Je viens de voir des revues dans le "Paper Technology", Nov.2010 sur tes livres.
Dear Dr Patel,Great to hear from you and teh good work that you are doing.Happy New year to you .I will be in Delhi Jan 24-27 and feb 8-11 and perhaps we can meet.Wisconsin is the paper capital of the world woth Kimberly Clark and there should be a lot of interest in your work,specially in Madison.I will like to review your book.All the best to your family.
Nice to know that you have written four books in the mean -2 for PIRA International and 2 published by Industrypaper. Please send me an invoice for the following biiks:
Minerals in Paper Manufacturing
Micri and Nanotechnology in paper manufacturing.
Please leave your message here with you contact e-mail or send your message to;
Sorry,contact: email@example.com is not functioning presently. Pl.send your query in
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.
