Description:

Part 1 of this two-part article (published in the April 2008 issue of Paper360°) focused on the technology, operating and investment options for adding biorefinery capacity to existing pulp and paper mills in the U.S. Part 2 examines the finan­cial case for adding such capacity. This two-part analysis of the most feasible and effective routes for the pulp and paper and forest products industry to add energy, biofuels and bio­based chemicals to their existing product streams was conducted by the American Forest & Paper Association’s Agenda 2020 Technology Alliance. A full, detailed presentation of this analysis will take place during the special bridge session linking TAPPI’s 2008 Engineering, Pulping and Environ­mental Conference with its 2008 International Bioenergy and Bioproducts Conference being con­ducted as back-to-back events at the same venue in Portland, OR, Aug. 24-27 and Aug. 27-29, respectively.
