Industrial equipment supplier Valmet recently introduced Mill-Wide Optimization (MWO) to enhance overall pulp and paper mill profitability. With Valmet MWO, production teams can boost the mill’s performance by making well-informed decisions across different process areas towards shared goals. Valmet Mill-Wide Optimization will be introduced at Valmet Customer Days in Copenhagen, Denmark, on March 29 to 31, 2023. The optimization observes the entire mill balance in real-time and considers both the current and future states of the mill. As a result, suboptimization of individual processes that do not align with mill goals can be avoided.

MWO also provides the ability to balance environmental sustainability with production, quality, and cost. Valmet MWO reflects the mill’s current state and maximizes production subject to existing and projected bottlenecks, while stabilizing the process and balancing pulp and liquor inventories. It adjusts the quality targets at each step from chip to finished product. The company also introduced the Valmet Mill-Wide Optimization Audit that helps to reveal the true production potential and the corresponding return on investment. Based on historical data, the audit helps to evaluate production, increase potential, identify limitations, and highlight use cases of mill-wide optimization. It also helps to uncover development opportunities required for moving towards fully optimized operations.

Valmet MWO helps to capitalize on these changes and unlock the mill’s full potential.”
