Abstract [en]

Entering the papermaking machine, the raw material that goes into a single A4 sheet of paper would look like a bucket of slightly dirty water. In fact, the stock furnished to a paper machine contains over 99 percent water and less than 1 percent actual paper fiber. Although most of the dewatering in papermaking is performed mechanically, a significant amount is done thermally – resulting in colossal energy usage and making paper production one of the most energy-hungry processes in industry. But where such large consumptions are in play, there also exist opportunities for significant savings. This is why ABB offers a paper machine energy fingerprint. This assessment quantifies energy flows and benchmarks energy use in the paper machine, enabling energy-saving opportunities to be identified.
