Abstract

Black liquor gasification/combined cycle (BLGCC) technology represents a significant discontinuous innovation in the way in which pulp mills recover chemicals and generate power. The value of the additional power, the impact liquor cycle changes on operating costs, and the difference in capital costs when compared with conventional Tomlinson boiler technology are quantified. The method includes detailed process modeling using IDEAS software and simplified capital and operating cost estimates developed in conjunction with two engineering design firms.
