Increased Use of Recycled PulpCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Recovered Fiber Pulping|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Use of recovered pulp can reduce energy consumption by 10 to 13 GJ/t-pulp (IEA, 2012. p.35))
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential|
Studies estimate the construction costs of recycled pulp processing capacity at around $485/ton of pulp. Depending on the price of waste paper versus virgin pulp this may result in up to $73.9 per ton of pulp in operations and maintenance cost savings (Kramer et al.2009. p. 97).
Increased Use of Recycled Pulp Publications
This Energy Guide discusses energy efficiency practices and energy-efficient technologies that can be implemented at the component, process, facility, and organizational levels.
Published by the International Energy Agency, this Energy Technology Perspectives 2012 is the most ambitious and comprehensive publication on new energy technology developments. It demonstrates how technologies – from electric vehicles to wind farms – can make a decisive difference in achieving ￼the internationally agreed objective of limiting global temperature rise to 2°C above pre-industrial levels. It also provides guidance for decision makers on how to reshape current energy trends to build a clean, secure and competitive energy future.
