  • Development in Biological Fibre Treatmentby Pira International Ltd

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2007; US$ 460.00

    Biological treatments for fibres seem like the perfect solution for reducing the output of harmful chemicals in papermaking. However they have also proved themselves to be able to reduce costs, improve efficiency and generally work more effectively than their synthetic rivals. But while enzymes have been used in certain paper processes for a number... more...

  • Chemical Recovery in Pulp and Papermakingby Pira International Ltd

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2008; US$ 380.00

    This study forms part of a suite of three technology studies from Pira focusing on chemical, water and energy recovery in pulp and paper making.

  • Emerging Technologies in Wet End Chemistryby Pira International Ltd

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2005; US$ 460.00

    At the wet end of a paper machine, papermakers already use various chemical additives to enhance end-use performance and manufacturing efficiency. This study looks at emerging strategies that can help papermakers leverage their investments in papermaking equipment and deal with new challenges, including new end-use applications for paper, a need to... more...

  • Emerging Technologies in Flocculationby Pira International Ltd

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2005; US$ 460.00

    Recent work suggests that if it were practical to form perfectly uniform paper, the tensile strength might be twice that of conventionally formed paper. This would mean papermakers could achieve equivalent product performance with less material. If technology could take us even half way, material savings could be tens of billions of Euros per year... more...
