Biomethanol– forming a circular bioeconomy at pulp mills

Over recent times pulp mills have become much more than simply “tonnes per year” in terms of revenue. First came the added extra of energy and district heating, then extracts of tall oil and turpentine, now all sorts of areas for extra revenue are being identified at pulp mills. As a clear example – and with the help of ANDRITZ – Swedish market pulp giant, Södra, recently started up the world’s first biomethanol plant at its Mönsterås mill in Sweden.

“Upgraded it. Switched it on. It all worked.” ANDRITZ SCREEN BOOSTER™

The testliner and fluting mill in Trebsen, Germany, used to send more than 1,000 tonnes a year of useable fibres to its rejects. Challenged by this obvious waste of resources, the mill asked ANDRITZ to help keep the valuable fibres in the production process. With ANDRITZ’s Dilution Water Upgrade in its tail-screening system, Trebsen is now using the fibres it once threw away, saving money instead of wasting it.
