EDT to Exhibit at PaperCon 2016

EDT will be an exhibiting company at PaperCon 2016, which will be held in Cincinnati, Ohio from May 15-18, 2016. For 2016, PaperCon will return to its roots and bring together decision makers from five TAPPI member communities: PIMA Management, Paper & Board, Coating & Graphic Arts, Tissue, and Nonwovens to create the largest technical conference and paper industry exhibit in North America. 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.

Each treatment is tailored to a mill's furnish, deink plant system, key operating conditions, as well as the desired goals from the application. EDT works with mills processing virgin pulp in the extractives management of mechanical pulps, fiber modification, and in the bio-bleaching of bleached kraft pulps.
