HOW DO ENZYMATIC TECHNOLOGIES IMPROVE TISSUE, PAPER AND PACKAGING PRODUCTION?

Here are a few areas where enzymatic technologies are superior to conventional chemistries and the benefits you can expect:

Fiber Conditioning

Enzymatic solutions condition fibers more efficiently than conventional methods, helping to preserve the strength of the fiber and enhance its performance. This can allow mills to:

  • Reduce refining energy—conserve resources, reduce costs and preserve the integrity of the fiber
  • Improve tissue, paper and packaging strength
  • Improve tissue softness
  • Use less expensive fiber and still achieve target results
  • Improve weight-to-strength ratio

Production

Enzymatic technologies can improve the efficiency and productivity of your mill, giving you the ability to:

  • Improve drainage
  • Reduce starch use
  • Save energy and reduce CO2 emissions
  • Run at faster machine speeds
  • Reduce dusting
  • Improve porosity
  • Reduce vessel picking

Stickies Control

Enzymatic technology can efficiently break the bonds of glues and pitch to keep them out of your process and away from your equipment and your finished sheet. Enzymatic solutions for stickies control can help your mill:

  • Reduce breaks and paper losses
  • Increase machine speeds and production
  • Improve deinking
  • Improve heat transfer on dryer surfaces to reduce energy costs
  • Reduce fiber consumption
  • Replace solvents high in VOCs

Deposit Control and Boilout Programs

Enzymatic deposit and boilout programs use highly effective natural enzymes and other low-risk ingredients to keep paper machines clean and running at their optimum level, while reducing risks to people and planet. Enzymatic deposit control can help your mill:

  • Control slime to keep machines cleaner
  • Reduce shutdowns for washups
  • Reduce the use of biocides
  • Improve pitch control
  • Reduce sheet defects
  • Increase runnability and tonnage
  • Reduce chemicals used in pulp bleaching
