Dr. Arne Asplund (1903–1993) invented the Defibrator pulping refiner and the defibrator-method (also called the Asplund-method) for pulping wood chips in the 1930s. Asplund was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) in 1947 for the invention and his further development of the defibrator-method for pulping wood and other fiber rich materials. He was later awarded the Great Gold Medal from IVA in 1969 for his work with defibration technology.
In 1985, the Arne Asplund Mechanical Pulping Award was established to commemorate Dr. Asplund’s contribution to the pulp and paper industry worldwide.
