Asia Pulp and Paper recognised for breakthroughsAsia Pulp & Paper Group (APP) has been recognised for its use of innovative technologies with Guangxi Jingui Pulp & Paper’s waste water treatment project as a Key Technology R&D Programme of China by the Guangxi Province’s Science and Technology Bureau1Guangxi Province’s Science and Technology Bureau1.
The R&D programme, into which APP-China will inject a total investment of 200 million yuan (USD $32 million), enhances waste water treatment from chemi-mechanical pulp production with high-grade oxidization technologies. It was selected by the Guangxi Province’s Science and Technology Bureau Guangxi Province’s Science and Technology Bureau as one of the Key Technology R&D programmes among multi-billion dollar industries in 2012.
Jingui Pulp & Paper is one of APP-China’s large-scale mill facilities, which started pulp production in 2011, and it is the first enterprise to develop and employ this advanced technology for waste water treatment in chemi-mechanical pulp production. The process incorporates an alkaline recycling system that distills waste water and converts organic waste material into energy. At the same time, alkaline residues in the waste water are recycled and reused, ultimately enhancing energy conservation, emission reduction and clean production.
By deploying this innovative system, Jingui Pulp & Paper is able to recycle 95% of the water used in chemi-mechanical pulp production. It also enables the company to reuse 93% of alkaline in its waste water, while conserving energy equivalent to 33,000 tons of standard coal each year. More >>
