Abstract

Paper industry today is globally subjected to various environmental laws and regulations.The environ-mentally related issues for the industry include variation in regional regulations, emerging environmental standards and international environmental treaties.How the paper industry responds to these issues will shape the operating strategies for pulp and paper mills this century.The principle of sustainable development is leading paper industry towards more efficient use of energy and raw materials, as well as towards tighter mill closure.Conservation of water and energy are therefore important issues in the development of new environmentally friendly papermaking concepts.The paper discusses a case where waste-heat driven multiple-effect evaporation combined with a cooling tower is used to reduce the use of fresh water in a paper mill.
