HurterConsult was established in 1978 as an independent consulting engineering firm to provide services internationally for the design and implementation of all types of pulp and paper mills and fiberboard mills based on wood, wastepaper and nonwood plant fiber raw materials from annual and perennial plants, agricultural residues and fibre crops.
Recently with the interest in alternative fuels and power generation, we have expanded our activities to include consulting on cellulosic biofuel
projects such as celulosic ethanol and biodiesel.
Based in Ottawa, Canada, we have carried out a variety of domestic and international assignments
including market, resource, feasibility and sector studies; design engineering projects and technology transfer and advisory services such as technical and business seminars, procurement services, client representative services, and project monitoring services. We also conduct process development work which may lead to
Our client base is very diverse including development banks, project promoters and developers, existing pulp and paper companies, equipment manufacturers, major pulp and paper engineering consultants and government agencies.
cover the use of all types of fiber raw materials - wood, wastepaper and nonwood plant fibers such as bamboo, sugarcane bagasse, cereal straws, reeds and grasses, sisal, industrial hemp, flax, jute, cotton linters and other annual and perennial plants, agricultural residues and fibre crops - for the production of pulp, paper and fiberboard.
Unlike wood, there is a great variation in the physical characteristics of nonwood plant fibers from annual and perennial plants, agricultural residues and fibre crops, and each requires a different mill concept and design to produce high quality pulp and paper products. One of our specialties is the design of mills based on nonwood plant fibers.
With over 30 years behind us, we are prepared to offer to our clients the services
which they need to be profitable in today's rapidly changing world.
