Valmet is set to supply an electrostatic precipitator (ESP) for Shandong Huatai Paper’s ambitious 700,000-tonne chemical pulp project in Shandong province, China. The ESP delivery is scheduled for January 2025 and is part of Valmet’s order portfolio for the third quarter of 2023, with the order’s value remaining confidential.
Houyue Ma, Vice General Manager of Recovery Boiler and Power Generation at Shandong Huatai Paper, emphasized their commitment to sustainability and stated, “Green is our mission, sustainability is our way. This is one more activity for Huatai to introduce Valmet’s technology to implement the goal of low energy consumption, no pollution, and zero emissions. We look forward to Valmet’s technology and services to further support our green manufacturing and circular economy.”
Igor Panassol, Vice President of Pulp and Energy, China Area, at Valmet, expressed satisfaction with the ongoing collaboration with Huatai Group and highlighted the significance of the ESP project. He said, “The ESP project further develops our cooperation both in scope and depth. It is an important milestone for both companies and a good example of Valmet’s latest technology supporting customers to reach near-zero emissions through an environmentally friendly solution.”
The ESP delivery from Valmet encompasses all mechanical components of the ESP, along with electrification, instrumentation, and automation control equipment for the recovery boiler, boasting a capacity of 3,200 tonnes of dry solids per day (TDS/D). This ESP system will efficiently collect recovered alkali ash, with a guaranteed emission value of below 10 mg/Nm3, contributing to cleaner and more sustainable pulp production.
