Pulp & Paper International (PPI) is the leading magazine for pulp, paper and paperboard manufacturers in Europe, Asia, North America, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.

With the initial launch of the PPI websites, we have created key segments, biofuel and bio strategy, tissue technology, and packaging and converting technology properties. We're transforming our existing digital news properties to the new platform as well, including Mills & Technology, Environmental Matters, and Forest Products Logistics.
