Request for Papers

This year the theme of the PCA International Conference will be “Innovation in Pine Chemicals”. We have a very creative industry that has been able over many years to adapt to a wide range of market evolutions, cost changes, regulatory pressures, safety, system improvements, raw material issues and other pressures or opportunities that have impacted our industry.

When we talk about our industry, we should be very proud of the fact that we been able to adapt as well as we have.

If you have a new product, process change, safety system, technology use, energy reduction project that is an innovative change and that you would be willing to discuss in a paper, can you please let us know. What’s in it for you? – it shows your company as a leader and improves your image in the industry. For the industry, it helps us to promote ourselves as the innovative and creative industry that we are. This is very important in our outreach programs to legislators and regulators who do not
understand the pine chemicals business.

We are interested in papers from PCA members and non-members alike. Please send me your suggestions and ideas.

Best Regards,

Charles Morris
President and COO
