Efficient use of raw materials improves front-end cost savings and reduces environmental impact
Multimedia with summary
The efficient use of raw materials improves front-end cost savings, reduces environmental impact, and lowers costs associated with waste processing. To achieve these benefits, we have separate goals for the pulping and papermaking process areas. For the pulp mills, we targeted a 10 percent reduction in losses by 2020, whereas for the paper mills, we established a 5 percent reduction goal by 2020.
With respect to pulp mill losses, we have surpassed the five-year goal, reaching an approximately 13 percent reduction over the 2014 baseline.
New Enzymatic Technology Shows Significant Saving In Energy, Water Use While Increasing Productivity
Singapore, October 23, 2013 /3BL Media/ - DuPont Industrial Biosciences, in collaboration with Huntsman Corporation, announced today the results of a case study that demonstrates the superior performance of Gentle Power Bleach™, powered by DuPont’s first-to-market enzymatic bleaching technology, DuPont™ PrimaGreen® EcoWhite. The study, conducted between 2006 and 2012, measured significant reductions in water use, energy consumption and chemical use coupled with notable increases in product quality and yield.
