Where Experts Gather

Atlanta, GA, will host environmental experts, bioeconomy thought leaders, and pulp and paper mill professionals from around the world for two co-located conferences exploring the future of biorenewable resources. The Pulping, Engineering, Environmental, Recycling and Sustainability Conference (PEERS) and the International Bioenergy and Bioproducts Conference (IBBC) will be co-located at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta November 5-8. “PEERS and IBBC offer valuable information that you can apply to your mill to reduce variable costs and plan for the successful future of a pulp/paper/energy/chemical producer,” comments FITNIR’s Thanh Trung, who will chair a PEERS session on Unit Operations for Recaust/Kiln.

Designed by industry professionals, PEERS offers CEOs, mill managers, superintendents, scientists, process engineers, and suppliers a comprehensive conference with a peer-reviewed, expert-led technical program. Seven program tracks and an exhibit floor offer a customizable event experience.

IBBC brings together experts interested in leveraging the knowledge and assets in the pulp and paper industry to produce fuel, energy, and chemicals from biomass. IBBC’s highly-focused program includes technical presentations, expert panels, and case studies that offer a deeper analysis of technology and economics in commercializing biorefineries.

One registration fee covers both events; attendees may access technical sessions for PEERS and IBBC at any time, regardless of the topic area. This includes keynote presentations, Hot Topic Breakfasts, panel discussions, and more. The co-located events will be packed with information about sustainable production for today—and the future.

“A well-run pulp mill is a great asset in the bioeconomy and traps a lot of CO2,” says Daniel Nicholson of Solenis, who chairs TAPPI’s Alkaline Pulping & Bleaching Committee. “Pulp mill guys are keenly aware of energy saving efforts, but some of the bioenergy projects being discussed in conference sessions are still R&D efforts.”
