Pulp, Paper, Board and Packaging Microbiologist
Juha Mentu writes in his blog: "After my career as paper industry microbiologist (1983 - 2009) I have totally reoriented towards environmental problems of mining industry today.
Reasons for the closure of the paper microbiology development is the depression of this industrial area. No interest in rapid control methods can be found anymore. Positive attitudes still exist (esp. in Finnish innovation organisations) but "money rules" today. No economical support can be found for e.g. luminometric ON LINE methods from paper companies - and it is really a pity."
