Can we create bright and white newsprint with less odor and cleaner waste water?

WHAT WE LOVE:

  • High quality white newsprint for high contrast of text and pictures

BUT DID YOU KNOW?

  • Traditionally brightness gains are achieved with high amounts of chemically bleached pulp…
  • …which tends to come at the expense of high effluent costs and unpleasant odor to the paper

The Archroma Way to a Sustainable World: Safe, Efficient, Enhanced. It’s our nature.

  1. SAFE – IT’S OUR NATURE TO PROTECT
    A solid core: Our deeply rooted goal to protect people and our planet.
    Safe to use, safe to release and also safe to wear.
  2. EFFICIENT – IT’S OUR NATURE TO RETHINK SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING
    Innovating application processes that minimize resources and maximize productivity, both in our and our customers’ manufacturing as well as by setting ourselves ambitious sustainability goals.
  3. ENHANCED – IT’S OUR NATURE TO ADD ANOTHER LEVEL OF VALUE
    Innovation is critical. With it, we create additional effects, functionalities and aesthetics and sustainable differentiation to bring additional value, helping consumers to achieve their goals, for a life enhanced.

BREAKING NEWS / A system for optimized production of odorless high quality newsprint grades and lower chemical load

Leucophor® ACK or AFCN

Wet enddisulfonated optical brightener

  • Highly concentrated
  • Urea-free*
  • Highest whiteness with FDA food contact approval

Cartarex® NT or 2L Wet-end OBA quenchers

  • Capable of practically eliminating fluorescence in paper with little or no yellowing
  • Minimal impact on system charge (zeta potential)
  • Greater ability to quench disulfonated optical brighteners

Cartazine®

Wet endtintingcolorants

  • Cost efficient tinting colorant
  • Optimized for newsprint

“SAFE”: IT'S OUR NATURE TO PROTECT / with the BREAKING NEWS system

  • REACH registered
  • In line with Nordic Swan & EU-Flower requirements
  • Sulfide-free
  • Urea-free*

* Depending on product selection

  • REACH registered
  • EU flower compliant
  • Nordic Swan Compliant
  • Urea Free
  • SULFIDE FREE

“EFFICIENT”: IT'S OUR NATURE TO RETHINK SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING / with the BREAKING NEWS system

  • Replacement of reductive bleaching chemicals by disulfonated OBA leads to cleaner effluent
  • Disulfonated OBA maintains a high fixation rate in soft water conditions, a common issue for Newsprint producers
  • Addition of Cartazine dyes and disulfonated OBA late in the system enables high control in production with improved grade efficiency
  • Cartarex quenchers enable faster changes to non-fluorescent grades leading to increased machine efficiency, reductions in production of waste paper/ reduction of down time and lower production costs
  • Impact On Waste water
  • Process Time 0,0%
  • Productivity Optimization
  • Cost Optimization

“ENHANCED”: IT’S OUR NATURE TO ADD ANOTHER LEVEL OF VALUE / with the BREAKING NEWS system

  • Odor free alternative to reductive bleaching chemicals
  • ODOR FREE

BREAKING NEWS/ Main benefits in a nutshell

  • Safe products from a reliable global partner who applies international safety standards
  • Sulfide-free with no odor concerns
  • Reduced effluent loading from replacement of dithionite by OBA
  • Optimized and efficient process owing to reduction of grade transition times
  • Improved grade efficiency owing to reduction of out-of-specification production
