BioRegional MiniMills (UK) Ltd Summer 2008 Newsletter
Our industrial scale demonstration pulp mill black liquor gasification and chemical recovery plant has now been successfully commissioned and we are putting it through it paces at Ahlstrom Chirnside’s Radcliffe Mill
in Manchester .
Our technical team; Philip, Sergio, James, Harry and Edmund are carrying out a test programme with the black liquor generated at Ahlstrom’s pulp mill which will be concluded in the Autumn. We are very grateful for the support of the UK government Technology Strategy Board for the test programme.
A test and development programme for straw papermaking using our pulper (below) is also underway with support from the UK Home Grown Cereals Authority (HGCA). The objective of the work is to develop a quality paper product and detail of what would be needed to establish straw papermaking in the UK. We are planning our next Open Day this Autumn at the mill inManchester. We will be presenting the results of our test programme and interested parties will have opportunity to look around the plant.
Please let us know if you are interested in attending.
