Mitigation in the pulp and paper industry

  • Introduction to Waste Management and Climate Change

    Type: 
    Webinar
    Date and time:
    Wednesday, February 4, 2015 - Wednesday, February 4, 2015 Europe/Paris

    This webinar highlights the relevance of the waste sector to climate change, provides different technology options, and ways to overcome common barriers faced by developing countries when adopting these waste management technologies.

  • Product component and materials recycling

    Objective:

    According to the EC (19 November, 2008) “waste means any substance or object which the holder discards or intends or is required to discard.” Recycling materials and products – that are considered waste - is an ancient practice which shows that in times of resource scarcity (i.e. shortage of virgin materials) societies attach more economic and societal value to their own waste. This implies that throughout time the definition of waste can change as well. Generally speaking longer use or re-use of materials and products this is often mainly to cover a society’s needs.

  • Condebelt drying for pulp and paper industry

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    The Condebelt drying process was patented in 1975. The Condebelt drying process was originally created to increase drying rates of paper. Condebelt drying produces approximately 10-15 times higher drying rates than conventional cylinder drying. These higher drying rates are achieved by higher contact temperatures, higher pressing between the hot surface and paper and relatively low thermal resistance between steam and paper in the Condebelt drying process.

    According to Retulainen (2001), three features of the technology warranted further investigation after the first pilot tests:

  • Marginalization of End-Use Technologies in Energy Innovation for Climate Protection

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    Mitigating climate change requires directed innovation efforts to develop and deploy energy technologies. Innovation activities are directed towards the outcome of climate protection by public institutions, policies and resources that in turn shape market behaviour. This paper analyses diverse indicators of activity throughout the innovation system to assess these efforts. Authors find efficient end-use technologies contribute large potential emission reductions and provide higher social returns on investment than energy-supply technologies.
