Processing Technologies for the Forest and Bio-based Products Industries Announces 2023 Dates

The 7th biennial international Processing Technologies for the Forest and Bio-based Products Industries (PTF BPI) 2023 Conference will be held October 30 to Nov. 1, 2023 in St. Simons Island, Ga. at the King & Prince Resort. Once again hosted by the Forest Products Society (FPS), the PTF BPI conference series has a rich history dating back to 2010 where the inaugural conference was held at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences in Kuchl, Austria. Since that time, the conference has rotated between Kuchl, Austria and St. Simons Island, Ga., except for a single year where the group gathered at the Technical University of Munich in Germany.

The PTF BPI conference series is held in a relaxed brainstorming type of atmosphere, where ideas on applied innovation for direct application are discussed is enhanced by the beachside venue of King & Prince.

In 2021, more than 20 exhibitors displayed some of the most current equipment and sensor technologies for manufacturing. Participants enjoyed a mix of work and pleasure with a pre-conference golf tournament and technical workshops on wood adhesives and data analytics. To truly round out the conference, Tuesday’s oceanside cocktail hour followed by conference banquet promises to be a wonderful experience for all.

The conference will start with several industry keynote speakers followed by plenary talks from industry innovators working in R&D. 2023 thematic technical talks will cover wood adhesives, wood composite processing, wood processing, advanced materials, nanotechnologies, secondary manufacturing, and marketing. A new section will also be held on data science and machine learning.
