FPInnovations’ newest measures to identify cost reduction opportunities for kraft mill unit operations

It is no secret that kraft fibreline equipment in North American kraft mills is getting old. Mills are upgrading their machines and looking for ways to improve their operations to become more efficient and cost-effective. To stay competitive against state-of-the-art operations around the world, new bleaching strategies and solutions for aging kraft pulp mills are crucial. In addition, the complexities of kraft fibreline chemistry can sometimes lead to severe bleachability issues and increased costs. To help kraft pulp mills maintain a stronghold in the market and address their issues, current research on fibreline chemistry by FPInnovations’ Shree-Prakash Mishra and the Pulp and Paper Manufacturing – Chemical Process team has been focusing on each stage of the bleaching process.
