Developing Innovative Bioproducts from Wood


Presentation Title: Mechanical Pulp with Added Value Products and Lower COD

Presenter: Oleg Shagaev, Andritz AG

The worldwide pulp and paper industry faces more and more stringent environmental restrictions and requirements to reduce Chemical and Biochemical Oxygen Demand (COD/BOD) from mill effluents. This informative session focuses on innovative ways to turn existing (and future) pulp and paper mills into biorefineries, producing value-added chemicals and polymers from process side and waste streams.


Compared to single-output bioproducts (e.g. ethanol), the cost for raw materials, chemicals and utilities are already part of the production cost of the main mill product – pulp. Valuable by-products from mechanical pulping waste streams get lost in the process steps of modern pulp production and biomass processing mills, including biological effluent treatment systems, evaporation and incineration.

What Will You Learn?

New processes and technologies designed to recover valuable biopolymer products, and how they can create additional value through new revenue streams and emerging markets.
