TECHNEWS: A HOLLISTIC APPROACH

Harmonization of EU-wide limits on emissions of dust, NOx, SOx, and mercury is currently driving the majority of the investments at large-scale combustion plants. The tightening of these limits will place a major challenge on many existing plants. To make effective use of capital, it will be necessary to integrate new and perhaps innovative equipment into an established, existing plant. This requires a special expertise.

ANDRITZ’s experience is that every plant has the potential to reduce SOx, NOx, dust, and mercury through a combination of reasonable operation adjustments and limited additional equipment. However, since additional capital is quite often scarce, it is important to take a holistic approach in order to arrive at a successful, reliable, and cost-effective outcome.

Market Trends: MEGATRENDS

They may consist of a group of smaller trends and phenomena. The most important ones are technological development, population growth and urbanization, shifts in economic power, and increasing environmental awareness caused by resource stress and climate change. For the pulp and paper industry, these megatrends emerge as both opportunities and challenges.
