Improving sustainability by reusing starch in recycled fiber

Interested in learning how to use less starch without losing the strength properties of packaging board? Do you also want to reduce your wastewater COD levels and odors? If yes, this is the webinar for you.
Recycled paper and board contains a significant amount of starch. Due to amylase enzymes in the mill's process waters this starch usually degrades before recycled fiber even enters a board machine.
Kemira introduces a unique approach and a revolutionary technology that protects both fresh and recycled starch from degradation and improves the starch reuse. By optimizing the retention program on the board machine the non-degraded recycled starch can be retained into fibers giving extra strength and increasing the grammage of the final board product with same fiber usage. Starch reuse also means that the wastewater COD level or odors can be reduced significantly.
In this 45-minute webinar our experts share insights and cases on how to:
  • improve sustainability through material efficiency
  • save costs, and
  • increase runnability

Business as usual is bad business

When your paper or board machine is up and running and things just work, the tendency is to keep doing business as usual. But from an efficiency optimization point of view, business as usual can be bad for business.

With Kemira TCM, we can help you improve your machine efficiency through continuous process optimization. The process of setting targets is the key to TCM partnerships because it ensures that the whole team works towards the same clearly defined goals.

TCM also includes Kemira KemConnect™ smart process management, which enables us to continually monitor your chemistries and help you increase process efficiency and machine speed, and reduce costs. As the single supplier for your machine we can optimize the whole papermaking process instead of just single applications, as is case when several chemical suppliers are involved. In addition, we will keep you up-to-date with the latest market-leading products and technologies, and help you understand how they can improve your efficiency and end product quality.
