February 25, 2019 – TAPPI and Fastmarkets RISI, co-producers of TissueCon 2019, have opened the call for presentations for this year’s conference, running October 1-4, 2019 in Orlando, Florida. 

TissueCon 2019 aligns technical content in the tissue industry. Created two years ago as Tissue 2017, the annual conference was renamed TissueCon this year to better represent the growing value of its comprehensive technical information and intelligence, say organizers.

“TissueCon 2019 is the only non-commercial, peer-reviewed tissue industry conference being held in North America this year,” says Robert Dawson TAPPI’s tissue division manager, and Mike Jeapes, Fastmarkets RISI’s portfolio director, in a release. “With an expanded technical and business forecasting focus for 2019, our goal is to surface, examine and ideally solve the very issues that are keeping tissue technical professionals and executives up at night.”

Topics include issues surrounding sustainability, profitability and technology. The TPC is also accepting submissions on:

· Converting operations
· New technology showcase (NEW)
· Water usage
· Regulatory
· Operating efficiency/energy savings
· Fibre and furnish
· Process control
· Nanocellulose applications for tissue
· Tissue product innovations
· Chemistry and additives
· Yankee drying, creping and safety

The deadline for submission is Tuesday, April 30, 2019. For more information on topics and submission guidelines, visit tissuecon.org/call-for-papers.

TAPPI is a global association for the pulp, paper, packaging and converting industries, and Fastmarkets RISI provides reporting and market intelligence on global commodities markets including the forest products sector.
