EDT to Exhibit at Tissue World Milan 2017

EDT will be an exhibiting company at Tissue World Milan, Italy, to be held from April 10-12, 2017. With over 200 exhibiting companies and more than 3,000 tissue industry professionals, this show is the world's largest tissue industry event. Exhibiting company profiles range from tissue manufacturers, converters, jumbo roll suppliers to a wide range of industry suppliers. 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.
