From World Pulp & Paper 2014
Enzymes are all around us. They work by reducing the energy of activation necessary to facilitate a reaction, allowing the reaction to occur at ambient living conditions. Buckman has been a pioneer in the application of products containing enzymes in the pulp and paper industry, resulting in several breakthrough technologies. Maximyze products, when applied to a fibre system, can reduce refining energy, increase sheet strength, enable substitution with lower cost fibre, increase ash content, reduce steam consumption, increase production rate, and reduce the papermaking operation’s environmental footprint.
