FPInnovations and TEXO Consulting and Controls have signed a license agreement for the sale of FPInnovations’ Recausticizing Control Technology (RCT). RCT is an advanced software which efficiently manages the recausticizing process in kraft pulp mills resulting in reduced energy costs. Potential energy savings are approximately $1 million per year for a typical mill.

“Kraft pulp mills continue to search for additional ways to reduce their chemical cost and energy consumption, and produce more electrical power. The RCT is a simple solution to reduce both energy consumption and operating costs. Its simplicity is revolutionary compared to current recausticizing control systems on the market,” stated Mario Leclerc, TEXO Consulting and Controls’ vice-president of deployment.

The RCT software works in conjunction with a FPInnovations-developed FTNIR sensor technology currently sold by FITNIR Analyzers Inc. By combining these two innovative technologies, kraft mills can optimize the efficiency of a key part of their chemical recovery system.

The technology has already been successfully implemented in five Canadian mills.

FPInnovations and TEXO Consulting and Controls have previously signed licence agreements for FPInnovations’ Lime Kiln Control and Chlorine Dioxide Generator Control technologies. These agreements, including RCT, support the creation of advanced process control solutions for the whole kraft fiber line.

FPInnovations is a not-for-profit research and technology transfer organization.
