The world may be going digital, but that hasn’t slowed the
demand for pulp, paper, and paperboard products from an industry focused on
production efficiency for profitability. Growth has been propelled by
paperboard shipping boxes, and increasing interest in consumer product
packaging made of recyclable pulp and paper materials. Sustainability and
recycling initiatives supported by communities and businesses continue to
generate tons of recycled newsprint, magazines, mixed office waste, and recyclable
Magnesium hydroxide has proven to be advantageous in several
pulp and paper applications including deinking, peroxide bleaching, SOx
scrubbing, and newsprint bleaching. Because it can be used as the sole source
of alkalinity (providing 27% more alkalinity than caustic soda or other
alternatives), many manufacturers are turning to magnesia-based treatment for
partial or full replacement of their current chemicals.
The benefits? Improved reactivity and efficiency of using
our high-quality controlled products, total lower chemical costs, effective
waste treatment, and improved runnability of equipment.
