European Paper Week was held in Brussels on 28-30 November 2017 by the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI). More than 300 participants - companies, universities, government associations, consulting groups and media outlets - attended the event.
The CEPI had invited young researchers to apply for a chance to win the Blue Sky Young Researchers Europe Award. Among the eight finalists selected, three received the prize in November last year, including Jahan Golestani, who is currently in the second year of her PhD thesis at the Laboratory of Pulp and Paper Science and Graphic Arts (LGP2) under the supervision of Christine Chirat, Associate Professor with Accreditation to Lead Research, and Professor Dominique Lachenal.

Jahan presented her research topic, Purification processes of wood based cellulose by coupling chemical and enzymatic reactions. The process involves extracting hemicelluloses from kraft pulps through enzyme treatments and characterizing the oligomers extracted from the pulp. The main objective is to produce pure cellulose using a green process. The second is to obtain oligosaccharides for subsequent use in high value-added projects.
Furthermore, as a result of this prize the CEPI will automatically put her forward for the International Council of Forest and Paper Associations (ICFPA) contest, which takes place in 2019.
