    Business Forum PAP-FOR

    A two-day Business Forum being an integral part of the event, has traditionally become a professional platform for discussion of the PPI trends, projects and challenges between 166 professionals: pulp and paper producers, governmental representatives and industry experts.

    The Forum programme was dedicated to technologies and trends for all the industry sectors: changes in the Russian forestry legislation, new standards of forest management, prospective markets, approved technologies, experience and energy efficient systems for the industry, as well as the Russian forest regions' development and biofuel production.

    PAP-FOR Business Forum has become an actual guide from theory to practice: modernisation projects introduced at Syktyvkar Tissue Group Mill, Solnechnogorsk Mechanical Plant and Volga Mill reflected the real demand for re-equipment and new technologies raised at the round table of paper producers.

    On the eve of the Year of Ecology in Russia, the PPI specialists have discussed the opportunities for stabilisation and improvement of ecological situation at PPI mills.
