Strategic approach to co-generation design
Journal article, 2006

When considering the installation of a co-generation facility in a Kraft pulp mill, it is important that one first perform a mill energy efficiency study and set tactical targets with regard to energy projects/opportunities prior to specifying the co-generation plant design specifications, For the best case, the Simple Payback Period is reduced from 5.4 to 2.5 years when energy consumption is reduced before installing co-generation. Also, on-site GHG emissions can be reduced if such an energy efficiency study is performed before installing co-generation.
