With GreenBox+® hemicelluloses are extracted from wood chips to make a chemical
free and high yield corrugated medium pulp.
The pulp is processes like traditional corrugated medium pulps before producing
paper. The co-location and mass and heat integration between the paper production
and the cellulosic sugar production make GreenBox+® a competitive pulping platform
even at a small production scale.
GreenBox+® pulping is currently being demonstrated at the Thomaston Biorefinery
in Thomaston, Georgia.
Key success factors of GreenBox+® include cost effective treatment of the extract,
being able to return consistent pulp quality to the paper machine with uninterrupted
operation, and an effective energy integration of ethanol production with biopower.
