Improving sustainability by reusing starch in recycled fiber

Interested in learning how to use less starch without losing the strength properties of packaging board? Do you also want to reduce your wastewater COD levels and odors? If yes, this is the webinar for you.

Improving sustainability by reusing starch in recycled fiber

Recycled paper and board contains a significant amount of starch. Due to amylase enzymes in the mill’s process waters this starch usually degrades before recycled fiber even enters a board machine.

Kemira introduces a unique approach and a revolutionary technology that protects both fresh and recycled starch from degradation and improves the starch reuse. By optimizing the retention program on the board machine the non-degraded recycled starch can be retained into fibers giving extra strength and increasing the grammage of the final board product with same fiber usage. Starch reuse also means that the wastewater COD level or odors can be reduced significantly.

In this 45-minute webinar our experts share insights and cases on how to:

  • improve sustainability through material efficiency
  • save costs, and
  • increase runnability
