The black liquor gasification project shared by Norampac and ThermoChem Recovery International(TRI) has moved from commissioning to full commercial operation.

Norampac’s facility in Trenton, ON also recently completed air emissions testing, and is the world’s first commercial, low temperature black liquor gasification system.

“This is an important milestone for the technology and for the Trenton mill,” said JJ Davis, general manager of the facility. “We continue to be committed to spent liquor gasification at Trenton and are working with TRI to gain even more steam production and energy savings.”

The project at Trenton uses TRI’s low temperature biomass gasification technology to recover chemicals and energy from the spent pulping liquor the mill produces in the manufacture of corrugating medium.

The project is able to meet all of the mill’s spent liquor requirements, and supplies cooking liquor and process steam back to the mill to support pulp and papermaking processes.
