Use Case: Pulp and Paper Mill Waste to Energy

Pulp and paper mills are generating millions of tons of solid waste fractions across the globe annually. These waste streams are difficult to recycle as raw materials or utilize in the mill process. The next best thing is recycling them into energy. The mix of the different wastes is a perfect fuel for the wasteWOIMA® waste-to-energy power plant. The robust grate incineration allows for large variations in the fuel mix generating energy for the mill processes. For sites, where the paper machines or pulp equipment have been decommissioned, dismantled and facilities sit idle, the modular WOIMAline boiler island can be installed in the vacant space.

The pulp and paper mills’ production residues consist of pulper rejects, paper and bio sludges that are utilized most efficiently by recycling them into energy on site. This way their environmental impact is minimized, while meeting the site’s energy requirements.
