Pulp and Paper Overview
The high cost of energy and raw materials and the declining price of paper pose challenges. Paper is a mass-produced product, so production efficiency is critical.
Paper machine productivity is measured by multiplying the machine’s width by its speed and efficiency. Because it is increasingly difficult to increase the width, now more than ever the speed has a bigger impact on productivity.
Some of the challenges that the pulp and paper industry sector faces are:
- How to become more energy efficient
- How to reduce costs
- How to save time
- How to become more reliable
Mills are more pressed than ever to focus on process efficiency, machine reliability, and all of the other factors, from training to information technology, that affect plant productivity and profitability.
