Pulp and Paper Enzymes

The Pulp and Paper industry processes huge quantities of Lignocellulosic Biomass every year. The technology for Pulp manufacturing is highly diverse, and numerous opportunities exist for the application of microbial Enzymes. Paper and Pulp is a high-volume industry where the application of Enzymes have helped in the reduction of the use of harmful chemicals, which are toxic and harmful to the Environment. Enzymes are specific in function thus accurately do their job in various aspects of Paper production such as Fibre modification, old print paper de-inking, Bleaching of the Pulp and modification of Starch application on finished paper.

Application of Enzymes leads to :

  • Increased Productivity

  • Reduced need for drying and refining energy

  • Reduced need for drainage and bleaching chemicals

  • Increased Paper strength

  • Increased brightness level

  • Reduced dirt count

  • Reduced kappa number

  • Improved final product physical and mechanical properties

  • Improved Paper machine runnability

  • Fewer spots and holes

  • Fewer paper breaks

  • Increased felt life

  • Increase viscosity control and flexibility of starch slurry

  • Obtaining high-quality starch sizes

  • Replacing aggressive Oxidizing agents
