Challenge Description

Closed chemicals loops are essential for society & the environment as well as for the kraft pulp and paper industry. While most of their chemicals are recycled within the mill, a small amount of fly ash plus minor contaminants like dirt particles and chlorides cannot be recycled and is presently an underutilized side-stream. Furthermore, fly ash has a low apparent density and a hygroscopic behaviour which are a hurdle to its utilisation.
Mondi wants to find a partner who can find value-added utilization of our fly ash in advanced materials, and possible also team up with a partner that has a technology to compact the fly ash to improve transport and handling at the customer.
