About Paul Janze

Mr. Janzé has more than 30 years experience in engineering design, project management, equipment manufacturing and maintenance, primarily in the forest products industry.
His early experience in mill maintenance, equipment design and industrial engineering is a great benefit as he fully appreciates the requirements of a mill from an operations and maintenance perspective.
Paul joined Ausenco in 1995 as a Senior Wood Processing and Material Handling Specialist. In 2012, Paul was promoted to Manager, Wood and Biomass Handling where his responsibilities within the Process Infrastructure group include business development, design staff supervision, and review of industrial material handling design projects. Addtionally, Paul has direct involvement in feasibility studies and projects including: cost estimating, process conceptual design, detail design, project co-ordination and scheduling, construction assistance and mill `trouble-shooting’ of material handling systems primarily for pulpmill woodrooms, power generation facilities, sawmills and other industrial facilities.
His experience includes: biomass handling and processing including forest residuals, log handling, chip handling and screening, woodwaste from processing plants, wood pellets, wood strands, straw and poultry litter, sludge and biosolids municipal solid waste (MSW) and coal, coke, ash and alumina handling. He has a keen interest in technologies which recover and utilize waste materials and convert them into useful products such as wood pellets or refuse derived fuel (RDF). Paul’s specialties are fibre flow analysis, mass balances, process optimization and designing novel solutions to complex conveying problems.
Paul places great value on teamwork and on the interaction between client and engineer, recognizing the essential need to involve the client at all stages of the engineering process. He particularly enjoys visiting mills to view the operating problems first-hand, and to solicit the opinions of those whose responsibility it is to operate and maintain the equipment.
Paul likes to be involved with a project from early conceptualization through definition planning, detail engineering, construction, start-up and optimization. He is very cognizant of the need for a process to be functionally sound, operationally efficient and cost effective. See Pauls website,
