The Pulping, Engineering, Environmental, Recycling and Sustainability (PEERS) Conference, taking place October 28-31, 2018 in Portland, Ore.,USA, will offer eight program tracks focused on operations and maintenance throughout pulp mills. 
In the Engineering, Power & Recovery, Recaust & Lime Kiln track, you and your team will have the opportunity to gain key process knowledge and understand practical applications, from process simulations to bi-product processing, that will help improve optimization and drive economic success. 
Sessions will be focused on:
  • Lime Kiln Refractories
  • Combustion & Emission
  • Managing Mill Processes
  • Improved Kiln Operation & Efficiency
  • Bi-Product Sustainability
  • Improving Operations Through Simulations
  • Energy Optimization
With four panel discussions on:
  • Automation
  • Evaporator
  • Project Management
  • Refractory Installation.
After completing this track, attendees will be able to:
  • Define what are non-process elements and the means to remove these from mill processes
  • Describe the mechanism that contributes to carbonate scaling in green liquor scaling and devise the means to minimize its impact on the process
  • Describe the effects of firing black liquor droplet size on recovery operations and evaluate the use of steam injection on droplet size of firing black liquor at their mill
  • Explain the sticky behavior of bio-sludge and how it impacts the mill process
  • Recite the common faults in Kraft Recovery Boiler, as determined by statistical analysis
  • Evaluate and manage evaporator fouling to derive means to improve efficiency
  • Describe the benefits of CFD modeling on kiln operations and how it has influence kiln design
  • Assess the use of wood powder on kiln operations
  • Apply new data for alignment of kiln for greater accuracy
  • Realize the value of low pressure steam for paper mill power plant optimization
  • Describe strategies for use of warm and hot water in kraft pulping.
