The three-day course runs Friday, October 30, to Sunday, November 1.
The biorefinery course targets forestry company decision-making, and will address a wide range of key issues for biorefinery strategy and design. Expert instructors from across North America and Europe will share their experience, including numerous case studies. The course is being led by Paul Stuart, NSERC Chair in Design Engineering at Ecole Polytechnique of the University of Montreal, and Principal at EnVertis Biorefinery Consultants.
This is a critical time for the biorefinery development in the forestry sector – companies are at different points in setting their strategies, and any number of biorefinery product-process options are being considered. This course will seek to address some of the questions that must be addressed by companies considering successful biorefinery implementation, including:
· Which biorefinery products will provide sustainably good margins over the long term?
· Which emerging biorefinery processes are the most promising for making these products?
· What are process efficiencies and operating costs today, and what might they be in 5 years from now after the process technologies have matured?
· How do we best use existing mill infrastructure when implementing the biorefinery?
This course is intended for corporate personnel in forestry companies who wish to become more knowledgeable about biorefinery implementation strategy and design methods, as well as mill managers and technical staff who seek to identify and select the best biorefinery strategy at the mill level.
Designing the Forest Biorefinery will be offered October 30-November 1, 2015, at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta following TAPPI's IBBC event.
