Black liquor, a by-product of the pulping process is sometimes referred to as ‘black gold’ because of the high levels of energy it contains.
Brewing up new uses for woodfibre
Maine Coasters & Bio-Boards (Maine Coasters) envisioned producing biodegradable coasters manufactured from Sappi softwood pulp and spent grains leftover from the brewing process.
On the scent of natural solutions
The wood-boring Cossid Moth (Coryphodema tristis) has a broad range of native tree hosts in South Africa.
Combining forces to use waste heat
Gratkorn Mill in Austria has partnered with local energy provider Bioenergie Wärmeservice GmbH (BWS) to supply industrial waste heat generated by the mill’s combined heat and power (CHP) plant to Energie Graz for the next 20 years.
Rethinking energy and society
Climate change has resulted in shifting seasons and climbing temperatures, threatening to deprive us of the very things – air, water, food and a safe place to live – we depend on for survival.
Diving deep into more sustainable pulping technology
Currently, pulping of wood to isolate cellulose fibres for paper production uses energy-intensive technologies developed more than a century ago that require fossil chemicals.
