1 R&D and Sustainable Production in the Pulp and Paper Industry – Some examples Professor Gunnar Svedberg, INNVENTIA Sustainable Development: A Challenge for European Research Brussels, May 26, 2009

2 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, INNVENTIA (new name for STFI-Packforsk) – a Research Institute covering three value chains - printing and media - packaging and the supply chain - bioenergy, chemicals and biomaterials The INNVENTIA Group 270 employees turnover of 30 Million Industry-owned by 71% STOCKHOLM TRONDHEIM BÄCKHAMMAR

3 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, Important energy achievements in the Swedish pulp and paper industry during the last decades Oil consumption reduced by almost 80% since beginning of the 1970s while production has doubled Use of biomass for energy purposes almost doubled Energy efficiency increased Main reasons for changes: - Increasing oil prize - Environmental restrictions

4 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, Consumption of biofuel and oil Swedish pulp and paper industry Source:SCB and Swedish Forest Industries Federation Excl. fuel for back-pressure power

5 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, Important environmental achievements in the Swedish pulp and paper industry during the last decades Emissions of sulphur compounds has declined by over 95% since the beginning of the 1980s Emissions of dissolved organic substances (COD) have been reduced by over 85% Emissions of chlorinated organic compounds (AOX) have decreased by over 95%

6 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, Higher production and lower emission in Swedish pulp and paper industry Index Source: Swedish Forest Industries Federation

7 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, New and innovative processes for radical changes in the European pulp and paper industry Integrated Project (IP) in FP6 ( ) Coordinator: INNVENTIA, Catharina Ottestam Total budget: 17,9 Million EU contribution: 10,0 Million 26 partners (institutes, universities, suppliers, papermakers) 9 countries involved (Sweden, Finland, Germany, France, Switzerland, Netherlands, Austria, Spain, Greece)

8 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, The challenge: More from Less! Energy -30 % Wood Raw Material -30 % Waste & Emissions -20 % ECOTARGET Water -20 %

9 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, Product properties + Reduced use of raw material + Reduced energy consumption Conventional sheet – a mix a all components Stratified sheet – an engineered material structure Pulp A Pulp B Mixed pulp fractions One example from ECOTARGET: Advanced material design

10 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, Industrial potential: 16% 6% Stratified forming together with advanced dosage possibilities new opportunities Example of impact for a SC-paper mill Savings

11 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, Carbohydrates Extractives Lignin Black liquor Challenge: In a modern pulping plant, about 50% of the wood ends up in cooking liquor and is used as fuel Wood to kraft pulp mill Base case: 1,4 Mton Pulp Cellulose products Base case: 0,6 Mton

12 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, Metsos LignoBoost Process – Improving energy efficiency, increasing pulping capacity, and producing a new biofuel (Developed by INNVENTIA and Chalmers University of Technology) Lignin OUT Recovery Boiler Digester Evaporation BleachingWood ChipsPulp/Paper Lignin IN Replacement of fossil fuel in lime kilns 50 L mineral oil/ADt can be save Wood Lime Kiln

13 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, LignoBoost Demo – Demonstration of lignin production Start-up Januari 2007 Nordic Paper Bäckhammar LignoBoost Demonstration plant

14 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, Lignin from LignoBoost Biofuel in lime kilns Mill trial in Mönsterås, Sweden 2008 Pellets Pelletizing trials 2006 Carbon fibres Development going on Typical composition C64 – 66 % O26 – 27.5 % H5.7 – 5.8 % N0.1 % S1 – 3 % HHV: GJ/t Lignin in fuel oil

15 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, SustainComp – New advanced nanostructured wood- based biocomposites Large scale, collaborative project with in EUs 7 th framework programme. Started September 1, partners in 8 countries. Coordinator INNVENTIA, Mikael Ankerfors Total budget: 9.5 Million (of which 6.5 from EU)

16 Sustainable Development Conference May 26, High Tech Composites Saved construction material Smaller engine Reduced forces -Finer dimensions Reduced fuel consumption Flight weight reduction
