GLRPPR Sector Resource: New Paper-Making Sensor Could Save Millions in Energy, Raw Materials

Title:
New Paper-Making Sensor Could Save Millions in Energy, Raw Materials

Abstract:
This news article from the GreenBiz.com web site describes a new ultrasonic sensor developed by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, that has been successfully tested at a paper mill in Jackson, AL. The sensor measures a paper's bending stiffness and shear strength as it speeds through a production web. This helps to ensure that the optimum amount of raw material is used to make the paper, which could reduce the consumption of trees and chemicals and save the U.S. approximately $200 million in energy costs and $330 million in fiber costs each year.
