Editorial: Special issues in March and May TAPPI Journal focus on the latest pulp manufacture and engineering research, TAPPI Journal March 2024


Conner, who is from Valmet, looks at how changing targets for kraft liquor total titratable alkali (TTA) and causticizing efficiency (CE) impacts different pulp mill unit operations. The study employs advanced measurement and control tools to help maximize both TTA and CE.

• A study from Tran and Bussmann at the University of Toronto proposes that high sulfate content in smelt resulting from low smelt reduction efficiency in recovery boilers may not be the culprit in formation of viscous “jellyroll” smelt. This may instead be caused by incomplete melting of fallen deposits.

ABSTRACT: This issue, organized by Editor-in-Chief Peter Hart, features content from the 2023 PEERS/IBBC Conference that has been peer reviewed for publication in TAPPI Journal. The papers encompass a range of topics:œ Two papers, from researchers Suarez et al. at WestRock, examine pulp from nonwoods like wheat straw and sugar-cane bagasse using a holistic life cycle analysis approach to project environmental performance in packaging products. The results can help mills make decisions about which fibers ensure a low carbon footprint.
