Host: Mechanical Pulping Committee Moderator: I. Omholt, FPInnovations, Paprican Division, QC

13:00 Mechanical Pulping Panel: Energy Consumption in Mechanical Pulping The electrical energy represents a significant part of the cost of producing mechanical pulp. Overall reduction of the energy consumption per tonne of paper has been an objective more or less since the introduction of refiner pulp, while the need for stronger and better mechanical pulps over the years has pulled in the opposite direction. However, the work to find compromises and to reduce the energy consumption KW by KW goes on continuously in the mills, at the research institute and through the suppliers. The session will be divided into two parts: 1) Focussing directly on mill experiences and 2) Research and Development Panelists: To Be Announced

This debate-style presentation will include participants from universities, supplier companies, consultants and mills who will try to demystify the following subjects: MPC, APC, PID, Fuzzy Logic, Soft Sensor, Expert System, Feedfoward – Someone help us make the right choice for our processes. Why use this type of control?

What is the best way to apply advance controls?

Where to apply the technology? How can we guarantee success? What are the main reasons for a failure? What implications are required by mill people? How to ensure the advanced controls stay running?

Prepare your questions; our panel will try to help you.

Names of the panel participants will be announced soon. Check regularly at www.PAPTAC.caunder Latest News.
