TissueTalk: join the ANDRITZ webinar for tissue producers worldwide. At our last webinar with Tissue World we presented our capabilities in the field of energy savings. We experience the trend towards an increased interest in responsible raw material sourcing, sustainable fibre sources, and reuse of waste streams. These actions reduce the environmental impact on our planet and support circular production. So, it’s time to talk about FIBRE!
We are constantly working with true pioneers in responsible raw materials sourcing and continuously develop technologies for the usage of sustainable fibres as alternatives to wood pulps. Our systems are perfectly suited to process alternative fibre materials of all kinds, such as wheat straw or others, and turn them into high-quality tissue. To confirm pulp properties and operating characteristics, comprehensive trials with numerous raw materials can be conducted in our Fibre R&D Centres and at our Tissue Innovation and Application Center (PrimeLineTIAC), which provide areal-mill environment with small, industrial-scale equipment.
How can fibres be treated and prepared for sustainable tissue production? What are the latest R&D findings of ANDRITZ’ fibre experts and how do customers experience ANDRITZ’ three pilot plants for fibre preparation (USA and Austria) and tissue production (Austria)? For us ”sustainable tissue production” is not just a slogan. This time our fibre experts will show you what forms the basis of CO2 footprint reduction and high-quality tissue production. Our pilot plant and R&D directors will share, their thoughts and experiences in mechanical pulping, annual fibre preparation, and potential fibre savings amongst other things, and will present the latest trial results.
When you attend this webinar, you will:
- Learn how to reduce your CO2 footprint by using annual fiber
- Learn about specific possibilities for annual fiber treatment and fiber savings in stock preparation plants
- Learn how to reduce the amount of fibers used with almost no impact on the tissue quality – even for premium grades
- Walk away with useful tips for achieving sustainable, cost-efficient tissue production
- Be able to exchange ideas and know-how with tissue experts
