PETER MILLEY FEATURED SPEAKER AT NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR BIO-PATHWAYS WORKSHOP

2012-11-07

Peter Milley will be a featured speaker at the NL Bio-Pathways Workshop in St. John’s, NL, November 7 – 8, 2012. The goal of the Workshop will be to aid in the development of a long term strategic plan for roll-out of bio-pathways / bio-refinery technologies in the Newfoundland and Labrador context.

Titled “Changing Markets: Disruptive Change and New Opportunities for Forest Products”, Peter’s presentation will show how recent and current market conditions for forest products explain both the decline of the conventional forest sector and the imperative to seek out new directions. This presentation will examine some of the major market shifts that led to the current situation , as well as explore changes and developments that will contribute to identification of new opportunities. The presentation will also consider these potential opportunities in the context of both the available and potential woody biomass resources in Newfoundland and Labrador.
