Pulp and paper mills discharge pollutants to the atmosphere from point sources during the manufacturing processes. Owners and operators of these mills are often required by law to obtain permits to discharge these pollutants. Government issued permits require emissions monitoring of the different point sources in mills to assure protection of human health and the environment. This module describes the most common monitored air emission pollutants in pulp and paper mills and continuous emission monitoring, predictive emission monitoring, and manual stack testing.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • List the major point sources for air pollutant emissions in pulp and paper mills
  • List the most common monitored air emission pollutants in pulp and paper mills
  • Describe continuous emission monitoring, predictive emission monitoring, and manual stack testing
  • Identify the importance of instrumentation calibration

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What are some of the ""point sources"" in a kraft pulp mill?
Air emissions come from recovery boilers, power boilers, lime kilns and smelt dissolving tanks.

What are some commonly monitored air emissions?
Commonly monitored compounds include sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and particulates.

How is a total emission rate for a given pollutant calculated?
A total stack flow rate, moisture content and average concentration of the pollutant can be used to calculate the total emission rate.

How does predictive emission monitoring work?
Predicitive emission monitoring involves inputting easily available production data such as flows, temperatures and pressures into a mathematical model which outputs a difficult or impossible to measure emission value.

What common emission value is usually obtained by manual testing?
Particulate tests are often done by sampling a known volume of stack gas through a filter to manually determine that amount of particulate.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

As part of the black liquor combustion process, recovery boilers and smelt dissolving tanks produce pollutants, including, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, particulate matter, total reduced sulfur compounds, and sulfur dioxide. All of these pollutants, except particulates, can be monitored by continuous emission monitoring instrumentation. Particulates require manual stack testing. Other gasses, such as the noncondensable gasses, NCGs previously mentioned, may also be directed to and burned in recovery boilers.

Customer Q&A

Ask a Question

Sorry, we're missing some information

How do I log in to watch a video that I have already paid for?

Easy! Moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course, you'll receive an email with login details. Just click the link and log in with your user name and password and you're on your way!

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
