    Nov 29, 2016 The lime kiln in a kraft pulp mill converts lime mud, which is largely composed of calcium carbonate (CaCO 3), into burnt lime, i.e., calcium oxide (CaO), and carbon dioxide (CO 2). This thermal decomposition reaction requires a high temperature and occurs spontaneously when the lime mud temperature exceeds approximately 800 C in a

    For kraft and soda pulp mills, reducing the lime kiln load not only translates to lower operating costs, energy consumption, and emissions, but also significantly reduces the amount of lime mud that requires special handling and disposal (ITP, 2011b). The concept of borate autocausticizing was first investigated during the early 1980s in Europe

    Pulp mill lime kilns go fossil free. Valmet has developed biomass-based alternatives for moving into 100% renewable fuel also for lime kilns. In a modern pulp mill, the lime kiln is the only major consumer of fossil fuel – usually natural gas or fuel oil. During the oil crisis in the 1970s and 1980s, several alternatives to fossil fuel were developed to reduce operational costs

    Lime is used in several applications within pulp mills. One of the most common applications is for the sulfite-pulping process. This process uses acid to dissolve the glue (lignin) that holds the fibers (cellulose) together. When acidic water discharged from this process is neutralized, lime is the reagent of choice in order to safely elevate the pH of the effluent stream prior to discharge
