Engineering, Recovery, Recaust, and Lime Kiln Track

October 28 - 31, 2018 | Portland, Oregon | Technical Solutions for Today and Beyond

Energy, Recovery, Recaust, & Lime Kiln Track – PEERS 2018

This track is organized by the Energy, Recovery and Recaust Main Committee (ERR)

This Committee provides a forum to collect information and disseminate the information as a guideline for energy management, sharing ideas on conserving energy, and/or increasing efficiency. The Committee publishes TIPs for public review (e.g. TIP 0416-24) and focuses on Pulp and Paper mills and power plants in areas of energy management and energy consumption including electrical, steam, condensate and efficient heat exchange.

Attendees are invited to attend the Energy, Recovery and Recaust Committee Meeting at PEERS and learn more about the activities of this committee and how to get involved in the planning of future conference programs.

The Energy, Recovery, and Recaust (ERR) Committee meeting will be held on Monday, October 29th from 1:30pm - 3:00pm.

> ERR Subcommittees will meet on Monday, October 29th from 3:30pm - 5:00pm

  • Lime Kiln & Recaust
  • Energy
  • Recovery & Power Boilers
  • Water Treatment
  • Environmental Working Group - Meets on Tuesday, October 30th from 1:30pm-2:30pm


The purpose of the Energy, Recovery, Recaust & Lime Kiln track is designed to provide practical knowledge on efficient and optimal operations of key process areas in a mill, including evaporator, lime kiln, recaust, and energy management. Topics also will cover relevant bio- and bi-product processing. Process simulations will allow for fundamental understanding of these key processes.

Presentations will discuss the use of wood powder as a replacement lime kiln fuel, the design considerations that will have to be taken into consideration when evaluating using wood powder as kiln fuel, and the lessons learned from operating with wood powder. There will also be a short review of the operating experience with using gasifier gas as lime kiln fuel that have been placed into service the last year.

Why Should You Attend?

Participants will gain an understanding on efficient and optimal operations of key process areas in a mill, including evaporator, lime kiln, recaust, and energy management.

Who Should Attend?

Learning Outcomes for Attendees?

  1.   Gain fundamental and working knowledge of key process, such as evaporators and kiln operation
  2.   Apply learning to choose equipment, such as types of bricks and burners, for kiln rebuilt.
  3.   Mills gain better energy efficiency, savings in kiln operations, improve evaporator energy efficiency, and safe operations.

Which Energy, Recovery, Recaust. & Lime Kiln Sessions will be Held?
