Stora Enso's Imatra Mills in Finland consist of two production units: Kaukopää and Tainionkoski, 250km east of Helsinki, on the southern shore of Lake Saimaa. Together, they employ approximately 1,000 people and produce one million tonnes of board and paper annually. In the latest advance at the Kaukopää mill, Valmet has introduced its latest concept in the form of stabilizing controls for the entire bleach line.
As part of the Slush evening for circular and clean solutions, Valmet participated a panel discussion arranged by the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra. The discussion revolved around smart water and marine solutions.
Fernando Carroquino, Industrial Director of SAICA Paper, shares his thoughts about the challenges containerboard makers are facing, especially from energy efficiency, lightweight and sustainability points of view.
Optimization smooths out bleach plant operation and demonstrates an 8.7% saving in bleaching chemicals with improved brightness stability in the Burgo Ardennes mill in Belgium.
