Over 150 expected at the first PAPTAC Intl Lignin Conference

In the last 10 years, a resurgence in lignin interest has been observed in response to issues such as the depletion of petroleum resources, climate change and energy security.

As a result of this renewed interest, several processes have been developed, demonstrated and/or implemented for the extraction of purified lignins from residual pulping liquors or other biomass processing operations.

Furthermore, great progress has been made in elucidating lignin structure and reactivity as well as incorporating lignin as a component or additive in various industrial products or processes.

The inaugural PAPTAC International Lignin Conference will take place Sept 18-20, 2018 in Edmonton/Hinton, AB. The conference will bring together researchers, industry representatives (lignin plant suppliers, producers and users), government officials and business executives from across the globe to discuss recent progress in all aspects of lignin chemistry and utilization in ten sessions, over two days, including:

  • Opening session
  • Lignin analysis and characterization methodology
  • Lignin extraction from pulping liquors or other biomass processing operations
  • Lignin process integration into pulp mill or other biomass processing operations
  • Lignin depolymerization and/or modification
  • Lignin applications and products (3 sessions)
  • Poster session

With 8 world-class keynotes and over 50 presentations and 20 technical posters from around the globe looking to showcase the most recent progress in all aspects of lignin chemistry and utilization, we look forward to an exceptional conference that will culminate with a site visit of the stae-of-the-art LignoForceTM lignin plant at Hinton, Alberta. This Conference will be the largest of its kind in the world showcasing Canada's leadership position in this emerging bioproduct area.

We look forward to a great premiere!
