The 2012 Paper Recycling Conference & Trade Show, Oct. 14-16 in downtown Chicago at the Marriott Magnificent Mile, offers a diverse educational program for the recovered paper industry.

Tuesday morning’s keynote session, “Milling Around," features Benoit Gratton of Cascades, Matt Nightingale of FutureMark Paper, Myles Cohen of Pratt Industries and moderator Bill Moore of Moore & Associates in a discussion of how mills are responding to changes in recovered fiber supply.

Also scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 16, is the session “The Business of Sustainability.” In this session, panelists detail sustainability efforts by retailers and consumer products companies and the opportunities they create. Moderated by Betsy Dorn of StewardEdge USA Inc., the panel includes John Mulcahey, Georgia-Pacific Corp.;  Elisabeth Comere, Tetra Pak; and Laura Rowell, Sonoco Packaging.

Later on Tuesday, “Residual Effects” examines changing materials streams and processing methodologies. Speakers include Sean Duffy of ReCommunity, Karl Mockros of Waste Management Inc., Tim Horkay of TFC Recycling and Hilary Gans of Rethink Waste.
