Availability of excess heat from the Swedish Kraft pulping industry
Paper in proceedings, 2018

An approach for estimating national targets for industrial excess heat recovery based on detailed
analysis of data from case studies followed by regression analysis is proposed and applied to the Kraft
pulping industry in Sweden. According to the resulting estimates, there is a large potential for
increasing the excess heat utilization from the Swedish pulp and paper mills. The suggested
methodology provides a more detailed picture of industrial excess heat availability in the Swedish pulp
and paper industry and could be applied to other sectors and regions.
