Dear Sir or Madam,

In June 2019, the international pulp, paper and biorefinery industries were brought together again in Graz. 500 experts and stakeholders experienced renowned speakers, different perspectives and valuable insights. An interesting trade show and pleasant social events rounded off our conference perfectly.

A special thematic focus highlighted how circular processes help us to make a comprehensive and prudent use of resources as possible:

We draw circles...
In a perfect circular economy, nothing is thrown away or wasted. As a member of the paper and pulp industry, we have already been pursuing this goal for decades with great commitment and success. In addition to maximum energy efficiency and extensive recycling, our sector is characterised above all by the extremely effective use of the sustainable resource wood. By exploring and implementing novel biorefinery processes, we will succeed step by step in expanding and closing loops.

... and lead the way!
Whether it involves wood, water or energy: If it concerns the sustainable use of valuable resources, our industry is rightly seen as a trailblazer. But even as pioneers, we are challenged to find and develop further potential to increase our added value. Under the “loop concept”, we will move in circles in the best possible sense of the word. This in turn requires in particular drive and momentum – in every fibre of our sector.

As initiators, our goal is to provide a platform for future-oriented impulses. We are looking forward to more trendsetting discussions on 27 May 2020 in Graz. Please save the date!
