Burgo Ardennes: Towards sustainability with energy  (Company news)

On 1st December 2016 Burgo Group announced, in the integrated mill of Burgo Ardennes, the conclusion of a large project aimed at replacing fuel oil used to power the boilers of Virton paper mill in Belgium with natural gas.

The project, which costs Euro 9 million, has an important environmental value, since it will allows an improvement of the mill performance in terms of CO2 emissions.

Founded in 1963 with a cellulose production line, the plant in Virton was equipped with a paper production line in 1991 and since 1994 is part of Burgo Group.

Burgo Ardennes is now the largest mill of the Group and the most integrated: it produces approximately 400,000 tons of pulp, 380,000 tons of coated paper and 370,000 MW of green energy. The 90% of the energy is generated from the residues of pulp production.

Metso’s optimization solution increases chemical efficiency at Burgo Ardennes pulp & paper mill.  (Company news)

... in Belgium

Advanced controls together with analyzers help the mill to face the challenge of running the fiber line more effectively and preserving the fiber quality properties at the same time.

Metso has won an order from Burgo Ardennes (photo) for the supply of a bleaching line optimization solution to its mill of Virton, Belgium.
In its process to replace its aging Kappa analyzer, Burgo Ardennes, which is an integrated plant producing hardwood kraft pulp and woodfree coated paper, made the decision to invest in a global optimization solution for its bleaching line.
This new solution aims at establishing the stability of the pulping process, which leads to the optimization of the bleaching production, the decrease of the chemicals consumption and then the decrease of the impact on the environment. Another key element is to better maintain the stability of the end product’s brightness together with on-spec production, thus allowing the mill to maximize the profitability of its pulping line.
Metso’s delivery will include advanced controls Metso Bleaching Optimizer which includes necessary sensors and analyzers like Metso Kappa Analyzer for kappa and brightness measurements. New samplers will be added as well as new in-line sensors like Metso Brightness Measurement will be installed for continuous brightness measurements and Metso Filtrate Sampler for pH measurements. This full solution will be installed in the bleaching fiber line. First part of the project will be completed in Summer 2012, and second part in Autumn 2012.
Metso’s solution was chosen not only because of its proven reliability but also because of the extensive knowledge of the pulp process Metso has been developing for decades. Today Metso Kappa and brightness analyzers provide the standard platform for process optimization and quality control at most of the leading chemical pulp mills in the world.
