Carl Daniel Ekman
Birth: Mar. 17, 1845
Death: Nov. 3, 1904
City of Canterbury
Kent, England

Manufacturer. He studied pharmacy at the National Technological Institute, Stockholm, graduating in 1868. He remained at the institute after completing his studies, conducting his first experiments with wood pulp there before taking a post at the newly opened Bergvick paper mill near Halsingland. It was while working there that he developed a new sulphate pulp paper making process. His work is regarded as of fundamental importance to the modern Swedish paper industry, and he is considered one of the founders of the country's industrial revolution. He then moved to London to work as a technical advisor in the paper making industry, setting up paper mills in England, France and Italy. In later life he settled in Northfleet, Kent, where his business, The Ekman Pulp Company, had erected its first mill in 1883, and was involved in an unsuccessful attempt to rescue The New Cycle Company. He was finally forced to sell his business to The New Northfleet Paper Mills in 1903, following a law suit against him for disposing of sulphate waste in a local quarry. He died a year later and in 1934 the Swedish Cellulose Association paid for the erection of a black granite monument on his grave. (bio by: js)
