In the latest issue of Tissue Technology International (page 72-76) Meva Energy’s technology is featured in relation to use in a tissue drying process to replace fossil gas.
The article describes how renewable syngas from a decentralized Meva Energy gasification plant can replace fossil natural gas/LPG and cut CO2 emissions down to negative levels and enable sustainability values for a tissue mill.
Replacing fossil gas for tissue drying has been one of the main unsolved CO2 obstacles within tissue production. High quality demands in combination with cost efficiency has led to that best practice in the industry has been to combust fossil natural gas/LPG to generate heat for tissue drying. Especially the natural gas used in tissue drying hoods to generate hot air has been though to find an alternative due to that the hot flue gases is in direct contact with the paper.
