Application of Supply conservation curves to Steam systems in pulp and paper industry, 2016 Pulping, Engineering, Environmental, Recycling, Sustainability (PEERS) Conference Proceedings

The pulp and paper industry is a large consumer of energy. Energy costs account for over 25% of all manufacturing costs. In the light of the Performance, Achieve and Trade (PAT) scheme, several mills in India have been conducting baseline audits and find that there are several areas where energy can be saved. Auditors make several recommendations, and which ones to take on first, and which ones to do later becomes a dilemma. This is an attempt to provide a scientific and systematic answer to the dilemma of selection & prioritization. The objective is to go beyond the simple payback calculations & discount rates and to integrate the technology with the financial models, making this process more robust. A typical Case study shows that out of available 55 measures 20 measures are not worth implementing at all, even though some of them have shorter payback, and vice versa.
