We invite you to join us at the 6th edition of the ‘Processing Technologies for the Forest and Biobased Products Industries Conference – PTF BPI 2021.’This biennial conference that rotates between Europe and the USA is dedicated to the exchange of information and ideas related to research that promotes product and process innovation in the bio-based materials industries. The conference is attended for interaction between industrial representatives and academic researchers. This year we have a great program covering advances in materials, process product innovations, business analytics, innovative design, and marketing. We will also host two pre-conference workshops on Monday: ‘An Introduction to Wood Technology and Adhesives’ and ‘An Introduction to Design of Experiments.’ We also will have a poster session on Tuesday afternoon. As in the past on Tuesday evening, we will have a reception with music on the oceanside patio followed by a banquet. I hope you will consider connecting with us at this beautiful venue on St. Simons Island, GA.
