ACCSESS Lunch Webinar – Integrating CO₂ capture in pulp mills: the effect of increased conversion of biomass feedstock on products

Pulp and paper mills emit large amounts of biogenic CO2, which could be captured and permanently stored to create negative emissions and thereby contribute to climate mitigation. However, the pulp and paper industry also has many other opportunities to contribute to energy and climate transition thanks to its renewable, biobased feedstock. If the feedstock is better utilized, for example by extracting and valorizing side streams from the pulping process, this can be used for the production of biobased chemicals, material or transportation fuels, which can replace fossil-based resources in other sectors. However, a development in this direction would affect the potential and consequences of integration carbon capture at the mills. 

In this webinar, Elin Svensson, Senior Researcher at Chalmers University of Technology, is going to look at the integration of a carbon capture process in a conventional chemical pulp mill. She compares this to integrating the capture process in the same mill, but assuming the mill has also taken strategic steps towards increased biomass conversion into products.
