Energy cost is typically one of the highest components of pulp and paper manufacturing cost. Mills that do not focus on the reduction of energy consumption and energy cost will not be competitive. Significant energy savings can be realized by monitoring and benchmarking energy consumption and implementing cost effective changes. Energy consumption on the “average” paper machine is ~20% higher than practical good performance targets. This presentation will describes some specific steps the mill can take to reduce the energy consumption in the papermaking process. Specific suggestion will be made for the key papermaking operations, such as stock preparation, forming, pressing and drying. Since the mechanical pulping is the largest energy user in most of Canadian mills a half-day session will be devoted to potentials for energy saving in mechanical pulping and refining. The course will be aimed at mill supervisor and operation staff. It will be assumed that the participants have the basic knowledge of papermaking and refining operations.
