Improvements in Chemi-Thermomechanical Pulping (CTMP)Costs & Benefits
|Parent Process: Mechanical Pulping|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Energy savings of about 283 kWh/t is estimated if the first refiner speed is increased and pH of the sulphite liquor is decreased (Martin et al., 2000. p.26).
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
Emissions saving by 128 kg-CO2/t is estimated (Martin et al., 2000. p.20).
Retrofit cost of implementing the improvement is estimated to be $300/t (Martin et al., 2000. p.26).
