Lime kilns go fossil free

In a chemical pulp mill, the lime kiln is the only major consumer of fossil fuel – usually natural gas or fuel oil. With the latest technologies and expertise, there are now several commercially proven CO2 neutral fuel alternatives. The two main alternatives are wood powder firing and biomass gasification. It is also possible to convert existing fossil fuel kilns to use biomass as fuel.

In mill-wide optimization, one plus one makes more than two

Autonomous systems can help improve reliability, because instead of being reactive, they can provide predictive and prescriptive information for decision making. Autonomous machines can learn how to optimize and run themselves, thus improving operational performance.

Turning side streams to value-adding products

In modern pulp production, operating sustainably is a continuous goal – pulp producers around the world are aiming for closed circles and working to minimize waste and harness side streams. We continuously expand our offering with new solutions. These solutions turn different production side streams into new value-adding products like lignin and sulfuric acid.

Let's move forward together

By combining your knowledge and our expertise, we can improve your production efficiency significantly, lower your operating costs and reduce your environmental footprint by providing you the unique solutions of our innovative process technologies, automation and services.
