Cellulolytic Enzymes – Versatile Tools in Papermaking, 18PaperCon

The use of enzymes in the pulp and paper industry continues to increase rapidly. Enzyme products are derived from renewable resources, and therefore application of enzymes contributes to sustainable production practices. Based on their specific targeted effect, enzymes have less unwanted additional side effects as compared to many traditional chemicals. However, in contrast to traditional chemistries where the normal practice is “plug and adjust,” the application of enzymes in these complex industrial environments requires a foundational understanding of the physio‐chemical properties of fibers, the biochemistry of the enzymes and an understanding of the physical/mechanical system that they will be applied in. Replacing conventional chemistries with enzyme‐based technology, when possible, is a more sustainable strategy for any industry, and a variety of benefits can be achieved when enzymes are used in the manufacture of pulp and paper, when compared to conventional chemistries.
