Part 1 of this two-part article (published in the April 2008 issue of Paper360°) focused on the technology, operating and investment options for adding biorefinery capacity to existing pulp and paper mills in the U.S. Part 2 examines the financial case for adding such capacity. This two-part analysis of the most feasible and effective routes for the pulp and paper and forest products industry to add energy, biofuels and biobased chemicals to their existing product streams was conducted by the American Forest & Paper Association’s Agenda 2020 Technology Alliance. A full, detailed presentation of this analysis will take place during the special bridge session linking TAPPI’s 2008 Engineering, Pulping and Environmental Conference with its 2008 International Bioenergy and Bioproducts Conference being conducted as back-to-back events at the same venue in Portland, OR, Aug. 24-27 and Aug. 27-29, respectively.
