Emissions reduction and control

Environmental protection through paper mill emissions reduction and control


Environmental protection is essential in today’s world – for the sake of everyone’s well-being. Emissions management is a key issue for pulp and paper mills. Gaseous emissions and carbon footprints must be reduced to satisfy legislative and regulatory environmental requirements. Environmentally sound operation is also fundamental for disturbance-free production. By promoting silent and practically emission-free production, paper mills can also improve their image and be recognized as responsible members of the community.

Valmet has developed technologies that help mills achieve all of the above targets. Our solutions are well-suited for pulp, paper and board machine lines, power plants, and recovery boilers.

Efficient emission control with lots of references


Paper machine noise levels have been reduced to meet ever-tightening requirements. For the reduction of sound emissions, we can supply optimal layout solutions and multiple products, like its Valmet Sound Attenuators for muffling a variety of sound frequencies. For better indoor air quality, we have high-efficiency droplet and dust separators that belong to the OptiAir Environment family. For gas emissions control, we offer solutions like CO2-free coating air drying. Our information management systems, meanwhile, enable mills to react and respond rapidly to process disturbances.
