It has been a busy summer and I am sorry that this was not posted earlier. The primary purpose for attending the Pacwest 2012 Conference, in Jasper, Alberta was to present the paper “Making It With Less (equipment, energy, water and other stuff)” This was also presented at TAPPI’s Papercon conference in New Orleans, during April. To our surprise, the Pacwest paper was awarded Runner Up – Best Technical Paper. There were 24 papers presented. Here is a photo of the plaque.
