Millvision (The Netherlands) optimizes new pulping technology
One of the specialisations of Millvision is process optimisation for the paper and board industry. The company from Raamsdonk (The Netherlands) works on a new pulping technology to extract lignocellulosic fibers from agricultural rest streams.
The binding agent lignin is soaked off and the process releases fibers which can be used for high quality fiber pulp for paper, board or composites. This new technology was proven at lab scale, but how can it work in practice? ‘We have an idea and Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant can assess the feasibility at larger scale’ says owner-manager Leon Joore. ’It is all about process optimization. We want to extract fibers that are as intact as possible and combine this parameter with the highest possible yield.'
