What Does Data Tell Us about Tissue and Towel Patterns and Trends?
Rod Fisher, President, Fisher International
Rod uses data and analytics to shine a light on patterns and trends in tissue grades, capacity, fiber, regional differences, capital investment, consolidation, U.S. vs European vs Asian models, new facilities vs. aging fleet, and much more.
Creating a Better Future with Alternative Fibers
Cristine Schulz, North American Sustainability Business Partner, Kimberly-Clark
Cristine will describe how K-C is producing paper towels and tissues that are environmentally responsible and meet the performance expectations associated with the Kleenex and Scott brands. As demand for forest resources increase and available recovered paper is on the decline, Kimberly-Clark is identifying new sources of fiber such as wheat straw, which can provide the quality people expect while aligning with corporate sustainable fiber commitments.
