Industry leaders from around the world are scheduled to headline at PEERS 2019.

There's no better place to find the technical knowledge and personal contacts you need to make your pulp and paper mill more effective and to boost your career than at TAPPI’s Pulping, Engineering, Environmental, Recycling and Sustainability (PEERS) Conference, October 27-30, 2019 in St. Louis, MO.

Considered a key training resource for mills, PEERS offers a unique, peer-focused approach where leading-edge technical knowledge is presented alongside opportunities for face-to-face access with industry experts, peers and colleagues. Attendees are active participants and contributors to Q&A sessions, panel discussions, and roundtable forums, and TAPPI's peer-review process for speaker selection assures the highest-quality presentations with minimal commercialism.

This year, over 85 industry leaders from around the world will share their expertise on new technologies and process advancements.
