EDT to Exhibit at Tissue World New Orleans 2016

EDT will be an exhibiting company at Tissue World New Orleans, to be held from March 14-17, 2016. EDT will be discussing its enzyme-based technologies which center on a variety of value propositions for the processing of recovered wastepaper for the manufacture of tissue and towel. In particular, EDT will be focusing on its fiber modification technology and strategies employed with client mills to improve fiber strength in tissue, towel, and napkin and facial grades which allows for significant fiber savings through reduced basis weight, fiber substitution and reduced use of other approaches to develop strength.

The Tissue World conference topics will cover the complete industry chain starting with a Seminar on Yankee Operations, followed by the Senior Management Seminar tackling strategic market insights, and Technical Sessions over the last two days, which will explore a full spectrum of technological advancements. To help bring the wide range of issues impacting the tissue industry in North America into an even sharper focus, Tissue World has assembled an excellent panel of speakers, which will be held under the theme of: “Beyond sustainability – leading a culture of innovation and responsible production”.
