EDT Presents Technical Paper at Tissue World Americas 2010
EDT will be a presenting and exhibiting company at the Tissue World Americas Conference and Exhibition in Miami, Florida from March 24-26, 2010. EDT's technical paper titled, "Producing More, Better, and Softer Tons with Enzymatic Fiber Modification," will be presented on March 24 and will discuss strategies and results from mill-scale applications to pursue tissue sheet quality improvements and produce greater tonnage output. Just as the optimal enzyme blend is specific to each mill's situation, so are the goals that are being targeted. The discussion will deal with situations where the goals within a mill are different across grades, as well as the progress in attaining these goals.

EDT will also be exhibiting its enzyme-based technologies for the tissue and towel industry in the adjoining trade exhibition. These technologies center on a variety of value propositions for the processing of recovered wastepaper for the manufacture of tissue and towel. In particular, EDT will be focusing on strategies employed with mills to reduce wastepaper cost, enhance fiber yield, control stickies, and reduce total energy costs used in production.

Representatives from EDT covering North America, Central America, and South America will be present at the exhibition and would welcome discussions with any mill personnel attending the conference. Please stop by EDT's booth #3120 to see if EDT's technologies may be helpful in enabling your mill to meet its goals.
