“This study is an impactful demonstration,” said TJ Edi- torial Board Member Scott Rosencrance. “The work com- bines foam form concepts with optimization of chemical additive application. Extending the window of operation for some specialty additives can allow continued evolu- tion of wet-end system configurations, ultimately resulting in acceleration of commercial implementation of emerging production processes and grades.” Bliss will also be awarded the Honghi Tran TAPPI Jour- nal Best Research Paper Prize. The $2,000 cash prize is endowed by Professor Emeritus Honghi Tran, Ph.D., of the University of Toronto and author or co-author of more than 80 papers published in TJ. Tran established the Prize in 2019 to encourage high-quality research in TJ. The award will be presented at TAPPICon, April 30-May 4, 2022 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
