Case study: Refining & Strength improvement with FiberCare®
FiberCare® improves tensile strength in tissue production.
Increasing refining capacity while reducing energy consumption is a key challenge for many mills. Greg DeLozier of our Forest Products team explains how Novozymes FiberCare® implemented in a customer's fine paper production process helped overcome this challenge.
"Even small improvements in a mill's process can make all the difference. By implementing FiberCare®, mills can expect significant improvements"
The results were impressive, with a cut of 49% in refining energy. But that wasn't all: FiberCare® increased tear strength by 4.2% and breaking length by 9%.
