Cost Saving Strategies in Papermaking Chemistry
Authors: Martin A. Hubbe, Kasy King
This handbook provides cost-saving strategies associated with the use of chemical additives during the manufacture of paper. Topics include:
- Loss of materials (i.e. "yield" of the papermaking process)
- Production rate issues
- Inefficient use of functional additives
- Process-enhancing additives and their control
- Strategies to reduce the amount of fibers required to make a paper product
- Strategies to reduce the amount of energy to make paper.
A glossary of terms and a brief introduction to selected principles of capital budgeting are provided as appendices. This book is ideal for paper machine process engineers/scientists, paper machine superintendents, paper mill management, chemical supplier technical staff, product development engineers, paper mill consultants, and technical staff from allied industries, e.g. process control equipment, papermaking machinery, and environmental services.
