New from TAPPI PRESS: Chemical Recovery in the Alkaline Pulping Processes, Fourth Edition

Edited by TAPPI Fellow Peter W. Hart, Chemical Recovery in the Alkaline Pulping Processes, Fourth Edition is a practical guide for engineers and technicians. This new edition reflects 30+ years of advances made in technology and operating practices since the last publication. It covers the entire liquor cycle from the generation of black liquor in the brownstock washers through evaporation, the recovery boiler, green and white liquor preparation and lime kiln operation.

This fourth edition includes new chapters covering brownstock washing, best practices, and emerging technology. The black liquor chemistry chapter has been expanded and updated to include an improved description of black liquor.   

The chapter on best practices covers new, high efficiency recovery boiler technology and advanced process control features for both recovery boilers and the lime kiln. It also discusses an improved kiln feed system which effectively removes the drying processes from the actual kiln and allows a significant production increase with an existing kiln. 

Chemical Recovery in the Alkaline Pulping Processes, Fourth Edition is available in print and eBook format, or as a bundle of the two. Get your copy today!
