Low Consistency Refining (LCR)Costs & Benefits
|Parent Process: Mechanical Pulping|
|Energy Savings Potential||
The application of 100 to 200 kWh/t in LC refining can replace 200 to 400 kWh/t of high consistency refining at comparable freeness and tensile strenth (IPW, 2010. p. 24)
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
CO2 savings by 16.3 Kg/t is estimated.
