C&ME Steering Committee - This committee collects and publishes information relative to selection and fabrication of metallic and non-metallic materials for construction, repair and protection of equipment that is reliable, safe and economic. The committee is the main industry forum for discussing, investigating and publishing information papers on selecting materials of construction and protection; fabricating and inspecting; analyzing damage and failures, and protecting all manner of fixed equipment against corrosion and degradation throughout various types of pulp and paper mills.

Committee of Chairs - This committee provides a forum for information exchange between Division Council and Technical Committee Chairs. It is primarily responsible for developing and maintaining a long-range plan for the Division that will close the gap between the current and desired Division’s profile. The Engineering Division Council, acting as an executive committee, assists the Division Chair in the conduct of the Division’s business and maintaining continuity through changes in Division leadership.

Corrosion & Materials Engineering Committee - This committee collects and publishes information relative to selection and fabrication of metallic and non-metallic materials for construction, repair and protection of equipment that is reliable, safe and economic.

Engineering Division Council - This executive committee assists the Division Chair in the conduct of the Division’s business and maintaining continuity through changes in Division leadership.

Energy Subcommittee - is one of  four subcommittees of the Energy, Recovery and Recaust Committee.  The objective of the subcommittee is to develop and disseminate information relating to design, application, and operations in the following areas:
* Power generation drive equipment and auxiliary drives, the economic and technical aspects of energy procurement and sales, including fuels, electric power and heat.
* Energy policies affecting price and availability.
* Power plant conceptual thermal cycle design and integration.
* Economical and effective energy management technology for pulp and paper mill systems, which use heat and power, including steam and condensate systems and energy consumption management.

Energy, Recovery and Recaust Main Committee - This committee provides a forum to collect information and disseminate the information as a guideline for energy management, sharing ideas on conserving energy, and/or increasing efficiency. We publish TIPs for public review (e.g. TIP 0416-24). We focus on Pulp and Paper mills and power plants in areas of energy management and energy consumption including electrical, steam, condensate and efficient heat exchange.
