DEMO #4: PULP & PAPER MILL
TECHNOLOGY CONCERNED: POZZI provides a self-cleaning heat recovery system for effluent coming from the paper and pulp manufacturing process.
CONCEPT OF THE DEMONSTRATION: The POZZI system will be installed close to the pool for primary treatment of the water treatment plant, with the goal to recover heat from the paper manufacturing processes.
CONCEPT TO DEMONSTRATE:More
The system is expected to recover an important quantity of energy from an affluent with residual energy actually not used, in order to re-inject it in the cycle and reduce the global consumption of the plant.
In collaboration with Navigator, this is LowUP’s fourth demonstration site. The Setúbal Industrial Complex is located on the Mitrena peninsula, near the city of Setúbal,(Portugal). This site is home to a pulp mill and two paper mills, one of which (About the Future) was inaugurated in 2009 and is one of the largest and most sophisticated plants in the world.
