 Call for Presentations Now Open


Do you have a new technology that uses renewable materials from biomass to produce chemicals, polymers and fuels in support of the growing bioeconomy? If so, the 2021 International Bioenergy and Bioproducts Conference (IBBC) has opened its Call for Presentations (CFP) and would like to hear from you.

The Program Committee is seeking content which provides reports designed to inform, enlighten and engage both industry newcomers and seasoned professionals. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: Innovative Bioproducts and Biopolymers from Biomass, Bioconversion Pathways, and Supporting the Sustainable Bioeconomy. Because IBBC runs concurrently with the Pulping, Engineering, Environmental, Recycling and Sustainability (PEERS) Conference, the IBBC Program Committee will accept PowerPoint presentations with or without papers.

Undergraduate and graduate students are also invited to submit poster abstracts for the annual Poster Competition and a chance to win cash prizes. Abstract examples include, but are not limited to: process improvements in consumption of energy, water and raw materials, or the creation of new sustainable products.

Deadline for submitting abstracts is Monday, March 15, 2021 and can be uploaded to TAPPI’s Speaker Management System. For more information, please view the Call for Presentations (CFP) document here, or contact TAPPI’s Pulping Division Manager Lisa Stephens at [email protected] and 770-209-7313.
