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