APPITA Fibre Value Chain Conference & Expo 2014
15 - 17 October 2014, Rotorua, New Zealand

Fibre Value Chain 2014



Appita Annual Conference & Exhibition Overview


In 2014 the Appita Fibre Value Chain Conference & Expo is being co-located with both the Advanced Biofuels Research Network Symposium, and the Bioenergy Association of New Zealand (BANZ) Conference, offering three great events over a week.

Through our partnership with BANZ and ABRN, Appita aims to reach beyond the traditional boundaries of pulp and paper, offering delegates the opportunity to gain insights into the true potential of agro forestry for pulp and paper, wood products, bioenergy, biofuels and bioproducts.      

The three events combined will bring together organisations and stakeholders across the fibre value chain. It will include high profile plenary keynote speakers, subject-specific break-out sessions, workshops, symposia and poster presentations that will cover a range of important topics.

The events will provide an opportunity to network with a wide range of stakeholders and establish future collaborations in research and manufacturing.


Why attend?


Internationally the pulp and paper sector is leading the way into the production of biofuels, biochemicals and the emerging bio-based materials. This suite of conferences will include a wide selection of speakers and has been structured so that you can attend 1, 2 or all 3 conferences (discounts apply to multiple event registrations).


The conferences are structured so that if you are new to a topic you can get a quick introduction, or for those more knowledgeable, you can get an update on the status of technology options and their applicability to your business.

And most importantly of all the buyers and users of the emerging products. A highlight of the program will be hearing what

potential buyers and users will require as the emerging products need to be demand driven.
