Energy saving of 0.131 GJ/t-processed wood was reported in one study using a pulping aid named ChemStone OAE-11.
With the use of Phosphonate as a pulping aid energy savings of 8 to 10% were reported (Kramer et al., 2009. p.90).
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential|
Some studies have suggested savings of around $20 per ton of bleached pulp after the cost of chemicals have been considered (Kramer et al., 2009. p.90).
