Pulping Process Development and Optimization

Maximise operating capability and product quality

FPInnovations’ chemical pulping expertise ranges from solving material or process problems to conducting comprehensive pulpability studies. For several decades, FPInnovations has performed research and contract work in chemical pulping and tackled a wide range of challenges by finding solutions and developing useful techniques.

  • Increase pulp strength to reach the potential inherent in the original wood
  • Pulping with additives (AQ, polysulphide, etc.)
  • Simulating advanced digester operations
  • Determining how chip size and quality affect pulpability
  • Doing precise yield measurements
Our capabilities for research-scale characterization of the material/process combination could identify newer and better operating choices.
