The pulp and paper industry requires large amounts of power and heat in forms of hot air and steam. Solar’s best pulp and paper energy solutions use gas turbine-based cogeneration, better known as Combined Heat and Power (CHP). Cogeneration and CHP installations can reduce our customers’ carbon footprint and reduce energy consumption in pulp and paper production.
In our Product Handbook, read how Solar's wide range of power generation products play a critical role to help meet the demand for energy all around the world.
While producing electricity for the tissue paper manufacturing machine, the cogeneration system also provides hot air and steam for the pulp drying process, which helps with energy conservation. The gas turbine exhaust gases are directed at the Yankee hood for direct drying pulp and paper. The remaining energy is used in a heat recovery steam generator to create steam for the Yankee cylinder.

Solar’s experience in the pulp and paper process and tissue paper manufacturing process spreads across the globe with installations in six continents. This solution that Solar offers directly assists customers with undisturbed tissue machine production, energy cost reduction, and energy consumption in the pulp and paper industry.
Solar has installed more than 1.6 GWe of equipment in the paper industry, which equate to more than 150 plants worldwide. With gas turbines ranging from 1 to 39 MW, Solar can match most paper mills’ heat-to-power ratio. When switching from coal to gas, Solar’s equipment provides efficient power generation and helps reduce pulp and paper industry pollution.
