ATLANTA (October 1, 2019) – A new, practical reference is now available for pulping engineers and operators involved with black liquor evaporator operations and troubleshooting.

Published by TAPPI Press, Black Liquor Evaporation is the first comprehensive book to deal solely with the topic and is intended to be used as a reference for process-related aspects of evaporator design by novices and experts alike in pulp mill engineering and operations.

Edited by William J. (Jim) Frederick, Jr., Ph.D. and Nikolai De Martini, Ph.D., this book brings together knowledge and data on key areas in evaporation including design principles for evaporation equipment, relevant flow and heat transfer behavior in two-phase flow, black liquor properties relevant to flow and heat transfer in evaporators, auxiliary processes (tall oil soap recovery, fiber removal, condensate segregation, foul condensate stripping, MeOH purification, and NCG collection and incineration); evaporator scaling; and projected needs for future developments in evaporation technology.

Frederick is well known for his 40-plus year’s industrial experience and research focused on chemicals and energy from biomass-containing industrial residues, mainly kraft black liquor, with emphasis on pyrolysis and gasification research and technology development.

De Martini is an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto focusing on research relevant to chemical recovery and renewable energy. Prior to joining U of T, he worked as a senior researcher at Åbo Akademi University at the Laboratory of Inorganic Chemistry and at the Institute of Paper Science and Technology (IPST) at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Contributing authors include:

  • David T. Clay, Ph.D., retired, former senior process consultant,  Jacobs Engineering
  • Howard Jeff Empie, Ph.D., retired, former professor of Chemical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology
  • C. Douglas Foran, Ph.D., recovery engineer, Arizona Chemical Co.
