Techno-Economic Analysis of a Novel Solution for Biomass and Waste Valorisation in Paper Mills

G. Fiorenza, F. Di Gennaro, D. Barisano, F. Reale & G. Braccio
Paper industry is an “energy intensive” sector, therefore an increasing fraction of energy requirements is currently fulfilled by self-production, the most common solution being represented by gas-fired CHP plants. Moreover, the growing use of recovered paper and board as the raw material requires rational solutions for the management of the refuse originated by the mechanical separation of gross impurities from the usable fibre. A preliminary assessment of a novel solution for biomass and waste valorisation...
