This paper presents main achievements obtained during the years in the education and research activities, recognized at national and international levels. Among them, it worth mentioning, along with education and scientific results the international symposia in the chemistry and technology of cellulose (14) and the foundation of peer reviewed international journal “Cellulose Chemistry and Technology" (1966). At present, the production of pulp and paper is among the very few industries corresponding to the principles of sustainable development and which can be integrated in an industrial complex based on biorefining for full valorization of biomass resources.
