/tonne of pulp of which 3 comes from wet barking, 12 from the fibre separation (stone groundwood) and 10 from the bleaching operation. The ellluent has a low colour and the amount of suspended solids is normally in the range 20-30 kg/tonne of pulp. In the chemical pulping process ·150-600 kg BOD,/tonne is generated. The lower figure applies to semi-chemical pulping and the higher to the production of viscose pulps. Normally, however, the spent Iiquor is collected, evaporated and burnt leading to at least 95% reduction of the BOD discharge. The total BOD, of the

effect of fungal pretreatment on the energy consumption of refiners used for mechanical pulps and their corresponding paper properties have been investiga- ted in the literature (Akhtar et al. 1992, 1997a, 1997b). Also, the fungal pretreatment of wood fibers prior to chemical pulping have been assessed in the literature (Ferraz et al. 2000; Mendonça et al. 2004; Wolfaardt et al. 2004; Villalba et al. 2006; Çöpür, Tozluo¤lu 2007). It was reported that the pretreatment of wood chips with fungi in biochemical processes facilitated delignification (Scott et al. 1995

Possible positive aspects of this, compared to other etha- nol processes, could be lower investment cost, sulphur- free process, simplified distillation, and less inhibition in hydrolysis/ fermentation (von Schenck et al. 2007). The main part of the study presented here is a techno- economic analysis of the ethanol

Ivo Valchev Chapter 4 Chemical pulp bleaching 4.1 Introduction The main objective of bleaching is to remove encrusted substances to obtain a pure white product; therefore, the manufacturing process requires further delignification and bleaching of the fibers, as residual lignin is a major contributing factor to color. Unbleached chemical pulps still contain lignin in an amount of 2−4.5% on oven dry (o.d.) pulp depending on the wood species and process details. The bleaching process can best be regarded as a continued pulping in which a series of alternating

Nordic Pulp and Paper Research Journal Vol 23 no. 1/2008 91 KEYWORDS: Modelling, Simulation, Bleaching, Deligni- fication, Pulp suspension, Computational, Phenomenon models SUMMARY: Conventional pulp bleaching processes consist of the following unit operations: chemical mixing, bleaching reac- tions (retention towers) and pulp washing. The quality and pro- fitability of chemical pulp bleaching depends on how well one is able to utilise the physico-chemical phenomena (chemical reactions, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, mass and heat transfer) that determine

4 Bleaching of chemical pulp 4.1 Bleaching stages and sequences Historically chemical pulp bleaching was a single stage treatment with chlorine or hypochlorite. However, it is advantageous to apply moderate amounts of chemical repeatedly. Low charges of chemical cause fewer side reactions, therefore, the amount applied is consumed more economically. Consequently, multistep processes were soon developed. A one step treatment is mostly made if either the brightness gain required is low or the material to be bleached is already rather clean or bright, and responds
