In this workshop we will explore several key questions:
(1) How is paper-based packaging already approaching circularity? What are the challenges that need to be addressed?
(2) How can paper- and fiber-based products be used to substitute for single-use plastics?
We will hear from a panel of experts that includes:
Pat Lindner (Westrock)
Megan Robinson (Printpack)
Kathy Rowzie (Two Sides)
Nina Goodrich (GreenBlue)
Caroline Gaudreault (NCASI)
Jinwu Wang (Forest Products Laboratory, USDA)
Blair Brettman (ChBE, Georgia Tech)
Meisha Shofner (MSE, Georgia Tech)
Bernard Kippelin (ECE, Georgia Tech)
Chris Muhlstein (MSE, Georgia Tech)
Participants will also have access to a poster session highlighting the cutting-edge research being performed by Georgia Tech Paper Science & Engineering PhD students.
