Energy intensive fiber industry

.

10,000 paper and pulp mills in the global fiber industry are undergoing continuous change today. They have already taken a leading role in the closed-cycle economy by making optimal use of resources, integrating waste products into processes, optimizing energy requirements, transforming into a self-sufficient energy cycle, and using digitalization tools. Based on more than 100 years of industry expertise combined with our products, solution and services, we accompany our customers to make their production more environmentally friendly, resource-efficient and profitable for the fiber industry of the future.

Fiber industries on their way to decarbonization - find the right energy system design

The pulp and paper industry has already taken a leading role in the closed-cycle economy by making optimal use of resources, integrating waste products into processes, optimizing energy requirements, and transforming itself into a self-sufficient energy cycle. But how can you further reduce the energy consumption in both power generation and operational processes? The paper describes how the energy systems and can be optimized with regard to thermal and electrical power.
