VANCOUVER, BC, July 8, 2014 (Local News) -At Canfor Pulp's Burnaby innovation centre, director of research Paul Watson holds up a handful of tiny sheets of pulp, each one no more than a few centimetres square.

They have been cut by a customer in Japan from larger sheets that make up a bale of pulp, part of a specialty order produced at one of Canfor's three Prince George mills. On each piece, someone has drawn a small circle in blue ink.

Within the circle, there is a defect, a tiny speck or bump, imperceptible to the human eye.
