Abstract

The objective of this study is to analyse the market potential of new high efficiency CHP concept developed by VTT in German and European pulp and paper industry. The basic idea behind the new CHP concept is to co-combust SRF and other waste fuels together with paper mill sludge and coal to reach high steam values and high efficiencies. Because of the latest European directives and national action plans, it seems that there will be an intensive competition on the wood based solid fuels such as forest residues. This can support the growing use of SRF in pulp and paper industry's new boiler investments due to increasing price pressures for wood fuels. Based on this market potential analysis, some 54-82 new CHP investments are needed by 2020 to replace old solid fuel boilers in European pulp and paper industry. These new units would require 8-13 million tons of waste derived fuels. Based on this study also waste based ethanol production in integrated units in pulp and paper industry seems to have a significant market potential.
