Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
we cordially invite you to our traditional meeting in Graz bringing together approximately 450 experts and stakeholders from the international pulp, paper and biorefinery industries.
PAPER & BIOREFINERY
With its new title, broader focus and a more international scope the conference proves again that it is reflecting all the latest trends and industry developments: Since long production companies have been leveraging new potentials beyond traditional fields of paper production, operating as biorefineries and serving as energy suppliers. Their success strategies have never been more networked, more versatile, more innovative and more global.
As initiators, our goal is to create a platform for future-oriented impulses. To give a higher priority to the diversity of biorefinery is an essential step forward. English as the official conference language will help to increase the number of international contacts.
This year the focus is especially on wood fiber and its fantastic versatility. Innovative ideas and modern techniques allow a more comprehensive use of wood components and lead to a constantly expanding product range. During the 2-day conference distinguished and well-known speakers will be discussing aspects and success factors from different perspectives which are vital for the competitiveness of our sector. An interesting trade show and pleasant social events round off our conference.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Graz for inspiring and trendsetting discussions!
Kind regards Wolfgang Bauer Max Oberhumer Christian Skilich
