Investigate and improve the Kraft recovery cycle with emerging technology from an energy, GHG emissions, and economic perspective in order to inform policy governing the Canadian Pulp and Paper industry. 

Current research and/or projects

Research on the Canadian Pulp and Paper Industry: evaluation of technologies and processes from an energy, chemistry, and emission perspective.

Research and/or project statements

  • A CADSIM Plus model of a generic Kraft mill has been developed to assess the impact of several technologies on mill performance, mainly energy (fuel, steam, and power) efficiency, chemical recovery, emissions, water and chemical consumption, and operating costs.
  • In order to standardize base case assumptions of energy utilization and emissions by fuel type and process unit, a pulp and paper master database has been developed.
  • An Excel tool was developed combining process knowledge, CADSIM, and I-BIOREF correlations to estimate crude tall oil and lignin production potential in Kraft mills.
