With Papermaking 4.0, Voith is introducing its networked solutions to increase the efficiency, productivity and quality of the entire paper production process supply chain. In addition, Voith will be showcasing NipcoFlex T, a shoe press developed to reduce energy con-sumption and raw material in tissue production. At Tissue World, which is taking place in New Orleans from March 15 to 17, trade visitors will find Voith at stand E 240.

  • Papermaking 4.0 increases productivity and quality
  • NipcoFlex T lowers production costs
  • Find Voith at exhibition stand E 240

voith logo 2016Systems like OnCare and OnEfficiency are solutions that stem from the new Papermaking 4.0 concept. OnCare facilitates the maintenance management of paper machines, from planning, servicing and documenta-tion through cost control to spare parts management. The permanent monitoring of the entire paper machine allows optimization potentials to be identified and preventive maintenance measures to be planned and implemented. Preventive maintenance reduces unscheduled downtimes and the paper machine’s availability will increase. Unlike conventional software solutions, OnCare represents a complete maintenance concept, with the distinctive feature being that data are already embedded in the software system. Likewise, it is possible to integrate OnCare in existing systems.

In addition, Voith also developed OnEfficiency to maximize the paper ma-chine’s potential. OnEfficiency Forming gets right to the process at the heart of papermaking: sheet formation. This is measured and analyzed with a package of sensors so that dewatering, retention and flocculation can be stabilized and at the same time coordinated. As a result of the sta-ble process, raw materials and chemicals can be saved and energy usage reduced. Voith is a specialist in the entire paper manufacturing process and ensures that its customers benefit from a dependable documentation of practical experience in papermaking process management.

The increase in machine efficiency and improvement of paper quality are also at the core of the NipcoFlex T. At various paper mills, the innovative shoe press from Voith has already demonstrated that it can increase productivity and reduce costs. NipcoFlex T offers the benefits of up to 5% higher dry content, representing up to 20% thermal energy savings or up to 20% higher production, while maintaining the same or better paper quality. The production parameters of the press can be monitored online and re-adjusted if necessary.

Alfredo Sarli, Sales Manager at Voith Paper Air Systems, will be providing further insights into the latest work on tissue papers in his presentation “Energy Optimization of the Yankee Dryer Hood” to be held at 9:10 am on March 16, 2016 at the conference running alongside Tissue World.

Main conference sessions – Wednesday to Friday

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wednesday March 21, 2012 (full day)

Session 1: Sustainability in the Tissue Business

Steps Toward the Sustainable Value Chain for Tomorrow
Suhas Apte, Global Vice President of Sustainability, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, USA
      The historical sustainability focus of manufacturing companies, optimizing operational footprints and minimizing environmental impacts, is evolving to one of ensuring sustainability across their entire supply chain (from raw materials to shelf). Going forward, our scope needs to be expanded to consider our business’s value chain in a way that we become part of the solutions addressing the greater global challenges affecting us and our stakeholders. This will need to be demonstrated under the heightened transparency expected by our consumers and customers. We should expect that these trends will only be exacerbated in the World of 2050, inhabited by 9 billion consumers, where sustainable production and consumption is no longer nice to have but rather a requirement. This paper will outline steps companies can undertake to proactively address existing and emerging sustainability related global value chain challenges and opportunities.

Greenpeace: No Reason to be Afraid, Necessarily
Rolf Skar, Sr. Forest Campaigner, Greenpeace, USA
      Indonesia's rainforests and carbon-rich peatlands are being destroyed to make disposable consumer products, including paper for glossy magazines, toilet paper and packaging. Greenpeace -- along with a growing list of NGOs -- is campaigning to find solutions to deforestation in Indonesia. We invite the tissue industry to join this effort, if not for the environmental and social values, for the sake of the bottom line. As consumers increasingly demonstrate an interest in sustainability, companies ignoring rainforest destruction in their supply chain do so at their own risk.

Making Sense of Environmental Certifications Programs
Suzanne Blanchet, President and CEO, Cascades Tissue, Canada
Abstract – To be announced

Where Environmental Groups and Big Brands Combine Forces
Corey Brinkema, President, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), USA
    The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), the certification system that uniquely brings together companies and environmental scientists and activists, is in the midst of a remarkable marketplace expansion in North America. Having already attained a 5% share of the forest products market, both FSC demand and supply have exploded in the past 18 months. The tissue sector suddenly became more attuned to certification opportunities with the market leadership of Kimberly-Clark, and Clearwater Paper recently made FSC a reality for the retail grocery private label tissue. Where does it go from here? How much does the US consumer care? Where are the future sources of FSC certified fiber in the Americas? This paper will address these questions and share insights of recent US consumer research on responsible sourcing and purchasing of forest products.

Environmental Leadership in the Tissue Paper Sector – Beyond Forest Certification
Susan Rutherford, Sustainability Analyst, Ecologo, Canada
    While public debate about the environmental impacts of paper production are focusing on the role of forestry certification, producing paper in a more sustainable manner requires attention to environmental and other impacts at all life cycle stages of the product; from land and resource management, to emissions associated with manufacture to end of life recyclability. This presentation will review the major life cycle impacts of the paper production sector, particularly in the manufacturing stage and identify some leadership practices resulting in environmentally preferable paper products. Practices covered will include design, sourcing recycled content, air, water and waste management practices and energy production and management both for on site production and purchased energy.

How Customers Can Leverage Your Sustainability
Don Lewis, President, SCA North America, USA
     Building a strong sustainable profile has become a requirement for companies in today’s world. However, when customers leverage your reputation to build their own, you’ve become a value-added business partner and much more than a supplier. Don Lewis, president of SCA’s Americas operations, will discuss how SCA is adding value to customers through the company’s sustainability actions and programs. SCA is a global hygiene products and paper company with sustainability recognition that has placed it as one of the world’s most ethical companies by Ethisphere, on the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index, FTSE4Good Index and the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index. With sales in 100 countries, SCA operates across North and Latin America with hygiene products such as tissue, incontinence and feminine care products and baby diapers. Sales for SCA in 2011 were $16 billion

Session 2: Market Developments and Fiber Supply

Market Developments and Trends in North and South America
Esko Uutela, Principal - Tissue, RISI, Germany
    The North American tissue market is experiencing a new investment boom. The main driver seems to be the need for ultra and premium grade tissue, partly reflecting major retailers' target to upgrade their private label offerings closer to the main brands in quality, with a clear trend toward higher quality in the AfH sector as well. Market growth has flattened, particularly in terms of weight as the product light-weighting trend continues. Competition does not show any signs of lessening, and it is amazing to see how a growing number of small, independent converters have been able to forge ahead based on niche products, flexible service and sub-contracting orders from big players. Environmental certification and sustainability issues are also becoming increasingly important topics in the North American tissue business. In South America, tissue markets are in a very interesting expansion phase throughout the whole continent. The main focus is currently on Brazil, with the largest population and now also the highest tissue consumption in the region. In Brazil, the recent strong growth is benefitting from the increasing purchasing power in the inland and northeast regions. On the supply side, CMPC Tissue's recent aggressive expansion strategy has tightened competition further in Latin America, including the two largest markets Brazil and Mexico.

Fiber Supply – Where will Fiber for Tissue Making Come From?
Soile Kilpe, Director Global Consulting, Pöyry, USA

    The tissue industry is the second largest consumer of market pulp, after printing and writing paper. Market bleached hardwood and softwood kraft pulp usage is clearly increasing in the at-home (consumer) tissue segment, driven by the new investments in Asia and Latin America. About 40% of all market pulp is bought by the top 5 tissue producers today, but with the steady investment activity in the low per capita regions, and increasing number of new entrants, this share will change as fragmentation rises. Integration with pulp production at tissue mills varies by region and certain at-home tissue suppliers have transitioned to using market pulp by closing down or selling their pulp assets. Moreover, captive pulp for tissue making has declined in North America, but with the fiber poor regions like Asia growing, there will be a comeback of this kind of a concept for securing fiber supply. Reduced availability and higher price of recycled fiber is expected to benefit market pulp suppliers in the future. However, the cyclical nature of the market pulp business will continue to be a challenge for tissue producers, as they have high sensitivity to raw material input cost swings. This presentation will explore key questions related to tissue product quality development, the impact of technology/recycled fiber, sustainability drivers and the potential
need for new pulp products for the ultra-quality category.
