Production Technical Seminar

The Production-Technical (P-T) Seminar is RPTA's annual premier educational program for members. The Seminar focuses on issues that affect the ability of the recycled paperboard manufacturers to meet the growing demands of the marketplace, including fiber supply and reliability, energy efficiency, production efficiency, maintenance and reliability, and emerging issues.

Information members learn through the P-T Seminars will help companies make the highest quality recycled paperboard while reducing costs and environmental impacts.

RPTA's Production Technical Seminar is held annually at PaperCon - TAPPI's annual paper convention - and is open to both RPTA members and non-members who attend PaperCon.
