Papermaking Additives

TAPPICon 2022

Submit your abstract

This track will explore innovative developments in papermaking additives. This year's program will highlight the best use of current state-of-the-art technology as well as both incremental optimization and non-incremental advancements in technology. The program focus will be shared between new additives and/or new application strategies that shape our future. Priority will be given to strong technical papers that supports the TAPPICon 2022 theme.
