Last November 5th, SO WHAT project members from CARTIF, FAEN and ELEUKON visited the ENCE Pulp Mill in Navia, Spain, one of the project’s validation sites.
ENCE is Spain’s leading producer of renewable energy using biomass, with a production capacity of more than 950,000 tons per year of high quality eucalyptus pulp through its plants in Navia (Asturias) and Pontevedra. Pulp mills are relevant producers of waste heat, and as such ENCE has already identified a first project, consisting in the heat recovery from bleaching and causticization stages to exploit it in a biomass dryer.
As one of SO WHAT’s demosites, ENCE will use the project’s tool to analyse its manufacturing processes and it will benefit the experience of some consortium partners in Waste Heat valorisation processes.
