The executive committee meeting will be held on Monday May 23 in the evening,
immediately following the FBC18 reception.
The Exco meeting has been scheduled for 7 – 10 pm and will include dinner.
The agenda will follow shortly.
On May 26th (Thursday) a site visit to the Norampac, Trenton pulp and paper has been
arranged for a tour of the black liquor gasification plant. This is the first commercial
operation for an MTCI type system, the heart of which is the fluidized bed steam
reformer (9 meter bed depth).
The bus for Trenton will leave the hotel at 8:30 am on the 26th.
The bus will return to Toronto (via the airport if requested) and should arrive back in the
city by 3:30 pm.
