Sustainability, carbon footprint, and green initiatives are among the hottest topics in the tissue business today. Customers and consumers, retailers and distributors, governments and NGOs, buyers, and sellers are all focusing more attention on this area. And many industry-leading tissue companies are putting enormous efforts into improving all aspects of the sustainability profile of their products and processes, both now and for the future.

To examine these questions and issues in detail, the Tissue World Americas Conference, March 20 - 23 in Miami Beach, Fla., USA, has assembled a world-class panel of speakers for in-depth group discussions. The panel includes, among others:

  • Kimberly-Clark
  • Greenpeace
  • SCA North America
  • FSC – Forest Stewardship Council
  • Cascades Tissue · EcoLogo.

The panel discussion is part of an extensive conference program for Tissue World Americas, the most complete event for the North and South American tissue business. In addition to the panel, the four-days of meeting sessions include some 40 other experts presenting information and solutions covering:

  • Market sessions on the supply/demand outlook for tissue markets in the Americas
  • Fiber supply outlook for tissue making
  • Technical sessions covering all aspects of tissue making
  • Yankee Dryer Summit on safety, operational, and reliability issues.

The Yankee Dryer Summit, organized by Tissue World and TAPPI, is planned for Tuesday, March 20. It will share practical and non-commercial solutions to common issues that relate directly to the bottom line. Summit organizers note that one applied idea from the yankee sessions will pay for the conference many times over.

TAPPI has also scheduled its bi-annual Yankee Dryer Safety and Reliabilitry Committee meeting for Monday, March 19, at the convention center, courtesy of Tissue World. Committee members and guests in town for Tissue World are welcome to attend.

To ensure that you are part of this "must attend" tissue industry event, conference organizers strongly encourage registration today. Attendance at the tradeshow of vendors is free of charge, while attendance at the conference meeting sessions is subject to a registration fee. To get the cheaper "early bird" conference registration fee, sign-up online today.
