Replus Tissue and Cartiera Capostrada together for a more sustainable future
Replus Tissue and EIL have the opportunity to present a renovation plan of Cartiera Capostrada in Italy with which the Company has been collaborating for several years. This year Cartiera Capostrada is celebrating their 70th birthday: a perfect opportunity to rebuild and reface their plant to honor heritage while looking at a better future for the environment.
“Our project was born with the aim of optimizing production, while maintaining great attention to environmental protection. Since many years we have greatly strengthened our partnership, and now we see a new challenge. Aimed at the environment, safeguarding the planet from toxic emissions is a shared value between our companies. They decide to enhancing production while guaranteeing eco-sustainability. We are happy to announce the main changes we have planned. Our work for the Capostrada paper mill has always been aimed at energy efficiency and low emission.”
“To enhance this effort, we have implemented a plant modernization project. The aim is to optimize operating costs, exploiting the production process and reducing toxic emissions more than ever. This project is based on engineering that that synergistically combines software and hardware. Our experience in mechanics, aerothermia, automation and electrification allowed the building of plants, designed on the specific needs of every individual customer.”
“We’ll guarantee not only cost saving but also environmental sustainability, in a way of greater production efficiency. For this reason we have thought of a series of innovative REENERGY+ products, able to improve the performance of the system. Our attention to energy efficiency has pushed us to achieve great goals. The cast iron Yankee dryer will be replaced with a state-of-the-art steel one having a very high heat transfer capacity. The combustion chamber has been designed to guarantee Nox < 20ppm and Co <10ppm at 15°. The new hood has been designed for blowing air at 700° C and will work at 650° C.”
The old boiler will be replaced with an innovative recovery one, which exploit the exhaust air from the hood. The energy that would be dispersed in the atmosphere is recovered and used to produce the steam for the Yankee. A complete new Yankee doctoring system will improve sheet quality and paper machine production efficiency.
“We guarantee the complete turnkey installation of all elements and specialized assistance for starting up of the system in a few weeks. We have big projects to improve environment safety.”
