Abstract

Paper industry is facing today the challenges of being simultaneously flexible towards customers, efficient in the use of capital intensive assets, and ecologically sustainable both when using resources and utilities and with respect to waste handling. However, the production lines are not flexible enough to meet today's requirements because of some complex dynamics and rigid operational practices. The benefit of applying modelling and simulation techniques in pulp and papermaking manufacturing processes will favour a better understanding of the mechanism involved in the processes and their control loops. This will allow papermakers to find solutions for currently pending problems in the paper industry, such as fast grade changes, improvement of paper quality, optimising the wet end chemistry, enhancing runnability and reducing emissions by improving process design, process monitoring and decision support during operation. Due to the importance of the topic at European level, a COST Action has been initiated for promoting the development and application of modelling and simulation techniques in pulp and paper manufacturing processes. In this paper, a review of the state-of-the-art on modelling and simulation in the pulp and paper industry is presented, alongwith further research needs.
