Enzymes for pulp & paper

Enzymes for pulp & paper

Demand for paper and board continues to grow. 

Every mill aims to meet this demand in a cost-effective, environmentally conscious way.
With our enzymes, your mill can meet its sustainability goals.

Get the most from every tree

Get the most from every tree

Sourcing wood and fiber from sustainably managed forests leads to a range of environmental benefits. But it’s still important to get the most paper and board possible from every tree harvested. With our enzymes, you can upgrade the papermaking potential of fiber. Unlocking its full potential in this way reduces pressure on forests. It also lowers the amount of wood or fiber you use per ton of product. This in turn makes final board products lighter, with no compromise on strength. That reduces the overall CO2 footprint of the transport sector. This is especially important in light of the rapid growth of global e-commerce.

Enzymes deliver benefits across pulp & paper processes

Enzymes deliver benefits across pulp & paper processes

Enzymes can be applied at various points in pulp & paper production to deliver benefits right across your process.

Use more recovered fibers

Use more recovered fibers

Fibers recovered from recyclable grades can lead to operational and quality challenges. You can overcome many of the deficiencies of recovered fiber with our enzymes. They enhance the dewatering efficiency and strengthening properties of recycled furnishes. The result is smoother production and improved product quality. Enzymatic action on stickies in recovered fiber reduces problematic deposits. That benefits your machines and your finished products. In deinking operations, enzymes improve the final brightness and yield of deinked pulps.

Reduce energy and chemical usage

Reduce energy and chemical usage

You can maximize the strengthening potential of your fibers and runnability of your furnish with enzymes. That shrinks your mill’s overall energy footprint. Enzyme benefits include reduced refining energy and lower steam consumption. Enzymes can also displace or reduce various chemicals in the pulp mill, bleach plant and stock preparation. That further reduces your mill's energy footprint and environmental impact.
