Abstract [en]

The presence of dissolved matter in the pulp suspension in an oxygen (O-2) delignification stage, consisting mainly of dissolved lignin, is normally considered to negatively affect the delignification rate due to the competing reactions between the fiber bound lignin and the lignin dissolved in the filtrate. Recirculated oxidized filtrate from the post-O-2 washing is usually considered to be less harmful to the delignification efficiency than unoxidized dissolved matter originating from the cooking stage. To develop a better understanding of the mechanisms of the dissolved matter's reactions and impact on the O-2 stage performance, laboratory oxygen delignification experiments with varying levels of unoxidized and oxidized dissolved matter were conducted. The results showed that unoxidized dissolved matter had a negative impact on the delignification in the O-2 stage, whereas oxidized dissolved matter actually had a positive effect. The delignification efficiency of the laboratory experiments thus depends on both the amount of dissolved matter and its origin. The pulp viscosity decreased with increasing dissolved matter content irrespective of its origin but at higher COD levels; however, the viscosity drop was larger for the unoxidized dissolved matter. In terms of selectivity, the oxidized filtrate had a similar impact as additional NaOH charge. Both types of filtrates consumed hydroxide and the final pH decreased with increasing dissolved matter content. The final pH was significantly lower in the unoxidized filtrate experiments at higher COD levels, indicating a high reactivity between the unoxidized dissolved matter and the oxygen in the reactor. Based on the results, further understanding is achieved about the relation between pre-O-2 washing performance and process configuration in an actual mill case, as well as the impact of dissolved matter on delignification. The importance of efficient removal of harmful unoxidized dissolved matter is verified, but the results also suggest that the oxidized dissolved matter that is recirculated from post-O-2 washing actually has a significant positive impact on the delignification and is not just a potential problem in case of carryover to the bleach plant. Subsequently, pulp washing efficiency is critical both pre- and post-O-2.

Abstract [en]

The impact of dissolved matter on the performance of four fiberline process stages was investigated: oxygen delignification, hot acid treatment, chlorine dioxide bleaching, and hydrogen peroxide reinforced alkaline extraction. In particular the impact on delignification due to dissolved lignin was studied.

The impact of unoxidized and oxidized dissolved matter on lignin and carbohydrate degradation was investigated in a laboratory oxygen delignification stage. It was concluded that the delignification was decreased by the presence of unoxidized dissolved matter but increased in the case of oxidized dissolved matter. Both types of dissolved matter comparably increased the carbohydrate degradation. Thus, the presence of unoxidized dissolved matter impaired the selectivity. In the case of oxidized dissolved matter, the selec­tiv­ity was affected in the same way as when using a higher sodium hydroxide charge.

The presence of dissolved matter reduced the efficiency of a laboratory hot acid stage, and subsequently further affected the chemical demand in a following chlorine dioxide stage. In a laboratory chlorine dioxide stage, the presence of dissolved matter reduced the delignifica­tion. The additional chemical demand required to compensate for this reduc­tion was proportional to the content of dissolved matter. Moreover, the total chemical demand was found proportional to the total kappa number of the pulp, that is the sum of the fiber and filtrate kappa numbers. Finally, the presence of dissolved matter in a laboratory hydrogen peroxide reinforced alkaline extrac­tion stage reduced both the delignification and the brightness.

Furthermore, mill studies showed that the content of dissolved lignin varied significantly, and often more than the fiber-bound lignin, in a bleaching stage. For chlorine dioxide stages, it was proposed that the chemical consumption could be reduced by controlling the chemical charge based on the sum of the fiber-bound lignin and the dissolved lignin.

Abstract [en]

Pulp mills employ different control strategies to decrease the consumption of raw materials while still maintaining high product quality. To operate a kraft pulp mill in an efficient manner, it is essential to identify the key process parameters. Residual lignin is one of the most important parameters in chemical pulping and most mills base their process control on measurements of the lignin content, analyzed as kappa number. However, they typically only determine the content of the fiber-bound lignin while the dissolved lignin in the pulp slurry is merely seen as a disturbance.

Dissolved matter, especially dissolved lignin, consumes bleaching chemicals, and any variability of the dissolved lignin content will lead to non-optimal chemical charges and subsequently higher production cost. By measuring the dissolved lignin content as well as the fiber-bound lignin content, pulp mills can however apply chemicals based on the actual total bleach load. The impact of dissolved matter was investigated in four different process stages and it was concluded that both the content and the type of dissolved matter affected the performance of the stages. Furthermore, increasing the chemical charges in the process stages could only partly compensate for the negative impact of the dissolved matter.
