Supporting the Sustainable Bioeconomy

  • Leveraging Pulp Miss Assets
  • Biomass Utilization and Sustainability Assessments

Innovative Bioproducts and Biopolymers from Wood & Nonwood Biomass

  • Lingnin Recovery and New Products
  • Bio-based Polymers, Chemicals and Products
Biomass Processing & Conversion Pathways

  • Innovative Technologies to Transform Biomass

Poster Invite

In addition to program abstracts, undergraduate and graduate students in the pulp, paper and allied industries are also invited to participate in the Student Poster Session and Competition. Students who have successfully conducted research, implemented an innovative project, or have an idea for a project designed to sustainably drive the industry forward, should submit an abstract for consideration. Cash prizes will be awarded to winning posters.


These co-located conferences represent two of the premier technical events in their respective industry segments. PEERS was developed to help mills identify solutions that address their unique challenges and focuses on key areas that help maximize pulping operations and production processes for maximum effectiveness and efficiency IBBC is focused on new technologies using renewable materials from biomass to produce chemicals, polymers and fuels to support the growing bioeconomy through sustainable biorefinery.
