Shared PEERS/IBBC Nonwood Track Brings Together the Best of Both Worlds

Shared PEERS/IBBC Nonwood Track Brings Together the Best of Both Worlds

How can paper and pulping companies overcome solubility issues of kraft lignin? What are the differences in properties between commercially available lignin sources and the Phoenix CoProduct? 

As the paper and pulping industry continues to question and discover solutions to environmental problems, growing interests in new market opportunities are pushing mills towards the use of nonwood fibers for pulp and paper production. 

Both TAPPI conferences, PEERS and IBBC 2018, taking place in Portland, OR, October 28 – 31, offer a crossover Nonwood Track on this popular topic. The Nonwood Track offers attendees of both conferences the opportunity to learn about renewable raw material options and sustainable processes for papermaking. The shared Nonwood Track will cover new developments in the production of nonwoood pulp and potential uses for byproducts from the nonwood pulping processes.

Presentations will discuss the characteristics and potential of sulfur-free nonwood lignin, pulping and bleaching of wheat and oak straw, and the use of cannabis in the pulping process. 

As co-located events, attendees get full access to both conferences’ technical programs. To learn more, visit tappipeers.org or tappi-ibbc.org.
