October 18, 2010 - going to TAPPI

Monday, October 18, 2010

I am en route today to the TAPPI PEERS conference in Norfolk, Virginia.

TAPPI, founded in 1915 as the Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry, is the world’s largest professional association serving the pulp, paper, converting and packaging industries. TAPPI's members include about 14,000 member engineers, scientists, managers, academics and others from around the world involved in the areas of pulp, paper, and packaging.  TAPPI describes itself as a peer-reviewed, scientific forum of quality for its members to gain knowledge and networks to help them in their professional lives.

This year, TAPPI is throwing its 9th PEERS conference (formerly the Engineering, Pulping and Environmental Conference).  PEERS 2010 includes over 40 sessions aligned along 8 tracks:
  • Sustainability & Business Trends
  • Energy, Power & Recovery
  • Biorefinery
  • Corrosion and Materials
  • Practical Mill Engineering
  • Pulping & Bleaching
  • Recycling (9th Research Forum on Recycling)
  • Environmental
I will be presenting on opportunities for pulp and paper mills to participate in renewable energy certificate markets.
