Impact the Future of Pulp & Paper in a Changing World

The pulp and paper industry is facing a serious problem. Its workforce is aging and critical knowledge will soon be lost if mills and organizations do not develop a plan for the transfer of knowledge to a new generation of workers. Seasoned professionals can have a huge impact on the industry’s future by sharing their expertise and experience as a speaker at TAPPI’s Pulping, Engineering, Environmental, Recycling and Sustainability (PEERS) Conference.

PEERS, November 7-10, 2021 in Atlanta, GA, is an ideal platform for pulp and paper professionals to share new technologies, advancements, process improvements, or research projects with the industry. Its comprehensive technical program focuses on new methods and best practices to help mills optimize operations and reach their sustainability goals. The Conference provides professionals the opportunity to learn from industry experts in a presentation setting, as well as engage in peer-to-peer discussions during panel sessions, committee meetings and roundtables. PEERS also offers multiple networking events and includes an exhibit floor where attendees can speak face-to-face with suppliers about the latest technologies and solutions.
