Speaker's Presentations:

Visit for a summary of the event and Bangor Daily News for an article on innovation in the pulp & paper sector.

To remain competitive, Maine's pulp, paper and forest products industry is investing in innovative products, processes, and technologies.  At many mills, older machines have been modified to create niche products, including specialty papers, sold across the globe and creating new markets. Facilities are installing highly efficient co-generation units that supply electricity and steam for production processes, incorporating energy efficient systems and equipment, participating in demand response programs, and converting to biomass fuels.  Other companies are developing the next generation of biomass fuel to reduce energy and environmental impacts.  

E2Tech and the Maine Pulp & Paper Association (MPPA) are pleased to present a panel dedicated to continuing the positive economic impact of Maine's forestry sector.
