FPInnovations Leases New Recausticizing Control Technology to TEXO Consulting and Controls
June 30, 2011 - FPInnovations and TEXO Consulting and Controls have signed a new license agreement for the sale of FPInnovations' Recausticizing Control Technology (RCT).
According to FPInnovations, RCT is an advanced software which efficiently manages the recausticizing process in kraft pulp mills resulting in reduced energy costs. Potential energy savings are approximately $1 million per year for atypical mill.
"Kraft pulp mills continue to search for additional ways to reduce their chemical cost and energy consumption, and produce more electrical power. The RCT is a simple solution to reduce both energy consumption and operating costs," said Mario Leclerc, TEXO Consulting and Controls' Vice-President of Deployment.
Chris J. Kanters, FPInnovations' National Director of Intellectual Property, Contracts & Licensing, said, "RCT came out of FPInnovations' Chemical Pulping research program. We're very proud of our research team's work which is the result of years of R&D on the Kraft recovery process. This technology has already been successfully implemented in five Canadian Member mills."
