Trase: Indonesia's pulp sector has achieved 85% reduction of deforestation since 2011, but remains dependent on carbon-intensive peatland plantations

Trase: Indonesia's pulp sector has achieved 85% reduction of deforestation since 2011, but remains dependent on carbon-intensive peatland plantations

New Trase data shows Indonesia's substantial success in reducing deforestation rates in the pulp sector is undermined by the impact of developing pulpwood plantations on peatlands - associated with greenhouse gas emissions, fire risk and haze. The data shines a light on the complexity of addressing environmental risks; detailing 170,000 hectares deforested in pulpwood concessions between 2015-2019, despite the zero-deforestation commitments established by leading producers in 2013-2015.

Pratt Industries and Talo Analytic International celebrate 25 year relationship

Gary Byrd of Pratt Industries and Jim Thompson of Talo Analytic International recently celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the two companies' relationship. The relationship started in November of 1993.

For the occasion, Talo Analytic International commissioned a "tombstone" reminiscent of those typically prepared to celebrate a deal closing and presented it to Mr. Byrd.

Talo Analytic International began working with Pratt Industries when Pratt's Conyers, Georgia Mill was first financed. Talo Analytic International has been the principal technical adviser on the financing of every Pratt mill in the United States. Talo Analytic International was also a key adviser on the Visy Tumut Mill in Australia in the late 1990's.
