Improving Energy Efficiency in the Pulp and Paper Industry


Published on

Investment to improve energy efficiency in the pulp and paper industry can deliver large energy savings, improved productivity, and reduced environmental pollution. Opportunities to improve energy efficiency include: heat recovery, cogeneration, increased use of (self-generated) biomass fuel, and increased recycling of recovered paper, efficient motors and improved efficiency of steam use.

Improving Energy Efficiency in the Pulp and Paper Industry

  1. 1. Improving energy efficiency in the pulp and paper industry Thermal Energy International Inc.
  2. 2. The pulp and paper industry is one of the most energy-intensive sectors in North America and the European Union.
  3. 3. According to Statistics Canada, in 2014, the pulp and paper industry accounted for 24% of the total energy consumed by manufacturing operations in the country. Typical paper mills use most of their energy in the drying process. In fact some 60% to 80% of a paper mill’s energy can be used for drying of the product.
  4. 4. We have proven energy efficiency solutions that provide significant reductions in carbon emissions and energy consumption – delivering a high return on investment.
  5. 5. Our FLU-ACE® heat recovery technology can recover as much as 90% of the heat normally lost through dryer section / hood exhausts in the form of water at 50°C to 70°C.
  6. 6. This is possible using the FLU-ACE’s unique direct contact packed-tower design, enabling optimal recovery of both sensible and latent heat, in widely varying operating conditions.
  7. 7. Recovered waste heat is recycled back into processes and / or heating systems, significantly reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
  8. 8. The installation of venturi orifice designed GEM™ steam traps enables pulp and paper operations to achieve a 10% to 20% permanent reduction in steam costs, reduce water hammering problems, and improve their production output.
  9. 9. With no moving parts and a ten-year “no fail” performance warranty, GEM steam traps can eliminate the cost of replacing failed traps. Production interruptions caused by repeated mechanical trap failures are a thing of the past.
  10. 10. Our Super-Efficient Cogeneration™ solutions improve energy efficiency to as high as 93% and can provide up to 70% savings on electrical costs at a self- generated kWh cost of less than $0.04/kWh.
