Valmet and Shanying International Holdings Co., Ltd. have signed a contract regarding a delivery of a mill waste-fired boiler plant to Shanying Huazhong Paper's paper mill, in the city of Jingzhou in Hubei province, China. The new waste-to-energy boiler plant will supply electricity for the paper mill and enables the mill to utilize all of its mill waste in energy production.

The order was included in Valmet's fourth quarter 2017 orders received. The value of the order will not be disclosed.

valmet logoShanying International Holdings' investment in waste-to-energy solution enables high overall efficiency with very effective heat and power generation and supports circular economy. Installation is scheduled to begin in June 2018. Heat and power production will start early 2019. 

"Valmet's boiler technology offers the highest steam parameters and overall plant efficiency. We expect to achieve high economic efficiency with reduced need for maintenance and production shut-downs," says Yi Shuai, Plant Director at power plant of Shanying Huazhong Paper. "The tailor-made boiler design meets our expectations of steam parameters which allows us to utilize standard turbine, and we believe it will help to optimize the entire plant," he continues.

"This boiler delivery will be the first paper mill waste-to-energy boiler which has the highest steam parameters. We have developed our waste-to-energy concept especially for this type of power plants. The solution will enable excellent efficiency through high steam parameters even when combusting demanding waste fuels. Utilizing waste in energy production will enable a significant reduction of CO2 emissions compared to fossil fuel powered plants," says Kai Janhunen, Vice President, Energy business unit, Valmet.

Valmet announced in December 2017, that it will supply an OptiConcept M containerboard making line for Shanying International Holdings.

Technical information about the delivery

Valmet's delivery includes major parts of a CYMIC boiler island from fuel silo to boiler outlet. The boiler uses circulating fluidized bed (CFB) technology.

The green field boiler plant will use mill waste (paper rejects, pulp rejects and pulp sludge) as its fuel totaling to 260,000 tons of waste annually. Light fuel oil is used only for start-ups. The chlorine and alkaline content in the waste derived fuel is relatively high, but using Valmet's circulating fluidized bed technology the emissions are controlled efficiently.

2017 12 01 103830Today’s pulp and paper industry specialists are constantly being asked how, why and when on a variety of subjects. To ensure they stay ahead and on the forefront of their industry, next to the valuable constant of inter-company learning, it is exclusively through networking and panel discussions that the true sharing of knowledge can move the entire industry forwards.

Pulp Paper World Forum 2018, is the arena where sharing of ideas and experiences from high-quality speakers and companies will bring something unique to the table.

According to the industry, these are the topics that matter


Innovation and Digitalization -. Industry 4.0
The pulp and paper industry faces a series of transformations driven by digital disruption. In all aspects of business, technology is transforming how the industry operates. While some are fearful, others have already embraced the opportunity to increase efficiency and satisfy growing customer demands whilst developing novel products, technologies and swiftly progressing toward a low-carbon bio-economy.

Service & Maintenance
It is a time of opportunity for the pulp and paper industry as better integration of digital technology leads to major business advantages like less product rework and lower energy use, safer and more efficient work environment, self-monitoring equipment that recommends on repairs, maintenance and ordering parts that has brought a much greater level of customer satisfaction that even before. This evolutionary innovation is bound to continue and while technology has made for tighter profit margins and shifting demands, there is vast potential and this is where specialist, partners, service and logistic providers are essential and will make the difference.

Improving Environmental Impacts – the EU 2020
Energy costs in the industry represent on average 17% or higher of the total production cost at the average mill, globally the pulp & paper industry ranks in the top five consumers of energy, however the continuous technological improvements can further reduce environmental impacts and optimize the use of esources such as raw materials, water, and energy.

Key drivers in the reduction of environmental impacts has been an improved process efficiency and reducing the reliance on fossil fuels and the move to biomass CHP plants and the use of residues for bio based products.
