Drainage improvement

Recycled paper does not always have to be low quality – at least not with enzymatic drainage improvement and value-added fiber modification.

Recycled paper - enzymatic drainage improvement and value-added fiber modification

The advancement of recovery, separation, and processing of recovered fiber has significantly improved the global recycling efforts. However, the increasing demand for recycled paper has also made supplies harder to come by, and paper mills are having to settle for lower-quality feedstocks. 

Novozymes’ solutions ensure higher-quality of the recycled furnishes. Their efficient working conditions improve drainage without affecting the strength and overall quality of the final product. Enzymes can also help to increase machine speed or reduce steam usage in the dryer section.
