The Business Program held on the second day of the PAPTAC Annual Meeting explored the thorny issue of energy management from a number of different perspectives. Hosted by Hydro Quebec, the session offered presentations by the provincial energy provider, FPInnovations, Cascades, Natural Resources Canada and a number of others, with unique insights into how mills can reduce energy consumption to drive cost savings.

Jacques Perrault of Cascades provided an overview of Hydro Quebec’s “A Practical Guide to Energy Conservation in Papermaking.” Perrault informed conference attendees that a typical papermachine can in fact reduce its energy consumption by up to 20% without making any major capital expenditures. Considering that thermal energy consumes approximately 80% of total energy demand on a papermachine, such a reduction is not insignificant.
