EDT Presents Technical Paper on Energy Reduction Strategies at Tissue World Nice 2007 - Nice, France
EDT will be a presenting and exhibiting company at the Tissue World Conference and Exhibition in Nice, France from March 27-29, 2007. EDT's technical paper titled, "More Tons, Less Energy, and Reduced Total Costs via Enzymatic Deinking", will be presented on March 28 and will review a variety of strategies used by EDT client mills to reduce total specific energy use in the production of tissue and towel made from recovered fiber. These strategies focus on approaches to reduce pulping times, disperger energy, drying energy, refining energy, and enable mills to increase daily throughput, which has the effect of reducing specific energy per ton in all areas of production.

EDT will also be exhibiting its enzyme-based technologies for the tissue and towel industry in the adjoining trade exhibition. These technologies center on a variety of value propositions for the processing of recovered wastepaper for the manufacture of tissue and towel. In particular, EDT will be focusing on strategies employed with client mills to reduce wastepaper cost, enhance fiber yield, control stickies, and reduce total energy costs used in production.

Representatives from EDT covering Europe, Russia, and the Middle East will be present at the exhibition and would welcome discussions with any mill personnel attending the conference. Please stop by EDT's booth #1B15 to see if EDT's technologies may be helpful in enabling your mill to meet its goals.

EDT's applications span both recovered fiber and virgin pulp processing. In fiber recycling applications, the company works with mills on customized treatments for a variety of value propositions spanning improvements in optical properties, physical properties, and throughput/operations. The company has an increasing focus of work in energy reduction and in helping mills reach their corporate sustainability goals. Each treatment is tailored to a mill's furnish, deink plant system, key operating conditions, as well as the desired goals from the application. EDT works with mills processing virgin pulp in the extractives management of mechanical pulps, fiber modification, and in the bio-bleaching of bleached kraft pulps.

Based in Norcross, Georgia, USA, EDT has been providing mill-specific enzyme-based solutions to pulp and paper mills throughout the world since the mid 1990s.
