Forming a new opinion about forming fabrics Even though they are considered consumables in the budget, machine clothing products are critical to a papermaker’s success. A fabric supplier cannot hide performance: it is apparent in a very short time if a fabric is helping or hurting the process. This is the story of how a new forming fabric for printing and writing grades – PrintStar™ – was born. It was during discussions with printing/writing grade producers that the idea for PrintStar™ took form. One of those customers – in fact the very first customer – was in the Lac St. Jean area of Québec, Canada. The PM Superintendent at this first customer sums up his experience this way: “At the end of the day, I am responsible for the tonnage here. If I save 10% on fabric costs, but don’t deliver the tonnage, no one is going to give me a medal. With our business getting tougher and tougher, I need suppliers around me that I can rely on. Honestly speaking, the team from AstenJohnson has always been reliable, supporting their products, giving good service, and presenting us with new ideas.” Want to know more, follow this link to the full story.

New Technology for Frontline Papermakers On September 2nd Paperchine Quantum Solutions (PQS) and HTRC Industrial Solutions announced a Joint Development Agreement to develop WebMaster™. WebMaster™ will provide frontline papermakers with a powerful tool to track process changes in real time and take action before production and quality are negatively impacted. “We are very excited to be able to combine the papermaking strength of PQS with the technological capabilities HTRC has perfected over the past 30 years,” said Jean-Pierre Bouchard, Vice President of PQS.

Cascades’ new Greenpac mill leads the way for lightweight linerboard by Mark R. Williamson, Paper Advance

The new 540,000 tpy machine is designed for a "sweet

spot" basis weight of 26 lb/1000 sq.ft. (126.9 g/m2), thus providing a market push to lighter boxes. The major investment will hopefully lead the market for the next fifty years, says Cascades' Maurice Plante. With the on-time July 15 startup of the Greenpac Mill LLC in Niagara Falls, NY the containerboard industry must get used to a lighter weight future - from this source anyway. That is the plan of the majority owner Cascades who will operate the mill through its Norampac packaging subsidiary. The US$430 million cost of the project was financed with US$140 million equity investment of which 59.7% was invested by Cascades, 20.2% was invested by Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, and 20.1% was invested by Jamestown Container and Containerboard Partners. With a better print surface quality and improved strength , this mill's 540,000 tpy output is aimed at the just developing market for lighter yet high performance linerboard products that have become commonplace in Europe and elsewhere. In Europe, the average box weights are reported to be up to 20% lighter than in North America. Maybe this trend will catch on with the startup of largest recycled linerboard machine in North America with a designed "sweet spot" production of 26 lb liner. Using world-class technology in stock preparation and the board making process will help to establish the products' performance. Better performance with a furnish-saving lighter weight sounds like a win-win combination.

14

A fifty year investment This major investment– the largest project ever by Cascades - was taken to lead the company into a leadership position in the containerboard industry explains Maurice Plante, Vice-President, Containerboard and Boxboard. "If you want to stay a leader in the market you need better production assets. With this new machine we now have the capa- Mr. Maurice Plante, Vice-President, Containerboard and Boxboard bility to serve the market for the next fifty years." The market potential will be developed first in Norampac's corrugated plants. "Now, we can use this low basis weight high performance product in our own box plants (to prove the concept) and this should give us a competitive advantage," he adds. Plante explains that the return on investment favored a large 540,000 tpy capacity over a smaller machine. Of course there are risks that sales targets may not be met but those are mitigated by the fact that most of the production is already committed to Norampac mills and its partner boxboard producers. "We have firm contractual agreements for 80% of the production. The other 20% is going to the open market," says Plante.

World class processes To make sure the best world class machinery and process equipment was chosen Cascades experienced project team visited many mills in Europe, Turkey and Asia that produce lightweight linerboard. In addition to quality and runnability


PaperWeek Canada 2014

they were looking at reliability as well. Voith was chosen for the recycled fiber plant and Metso was chosen for the 328 inch (8.33m) trim machine. That width allows for three across sets for the newer 110 inch corrugating machines. The forming section on the board machine is a departure from recent machines outside of North America which have gap formers. The two-fourdrinier configuration – although longer - gives the mill more flexibility in controlling the forming process at low consistencies and with good formation, reasons Plante. As expected, the press section includes a shoe press. A film size press will impart a surface finish with better printing quality and extra strength. As another benefit, lower cost furnish could be used without detrimental effects. The size press has not been implemented yet, as Plante explains they have taken a step by step approach to the machine startup. He says the addition of the size press to the machine was based on future needs, but they reasoned it should be done now rather than at a later stage when it would be more difficult logistically and costly. The film size press will be started up in the coming months.

World class energy efficiency The mill has been designed to be one of the most efficient in the world, according to Plante. The energy saving technology includes variable frequency drives (VFD) on many pumps rather than flow throttling valves. Dry running turbo blowers are used instead of conventional vacuum pumps and this provides a 50% energy saving. All told, the specific electrical energy consumption is an impressive 480 KWH/t. Similarly, fresh water is used sparingly, with lots of recirculation. Fresh water consumption is 2 cu.m/t. Steam use efficiency is rated at 3000 lbs/t.

Ground breaking agreement

maintenance

In ground breaking news (for North America, at least) Metso is managing all maintenance systems and procedures at the mill. The agreement included the recruitment of all maintenance personnel prior to start-up. Upon start-up, Metso assumed full responsibility of the mill maintenance operations for the entire

UNROLLED Program / Programme

production facilities. The contract will run initially for six years. To make this important decision, Cascades personnel visited mills in Europe where similar agreements have been in place for several years. Plante explains their reasoning for going in this new direction for maintenance. "We are papermakers, not specialized in maintenance and Metso is very well equipped to do this. Everything in this mill is new, so it is a good starting point. We would have to hire people and train them ourselves. For Metso it is already done."

More developments to come With a brand new, efficient and world class mill and high quality yet lighter product, where is Cascades positioned for the future? Plante responds, "This investment allows us to be a leader in North America and allows us to grow with good profitability." As for new products on the market the company takes a cautious "just watch us" approach. Plante hints at new products in the coming months. These will be presumably tested in Norampac plants.

26 lb high performance board after startup The machine produced its first reel as scheduled on July 15. Initially, the basis weight was 30lb/1000 sq.ft. (146.4 g/m2) but that was worked down to 26 lb. (126.9 g/m2) "Right now (just after startup) we are producing 26 to 30 lb high performance board at 2000 fpm (610 m/min), " says Plante. The design speed of the machine is 3000 fpm (915 m/min) and the expected basis weight range is 23 to 35 lb. Plante notes the extremely good CD profiles achieved so far, even without the help of CD dilution and moisture profilers. The machine produced its first reel as scheduled on July 15. Initially, the basis weight was 30lb. but that was worked down to 26 lb.

Une entrevue avec Daniel Archambault, Vice-président exécutif, Kruger inc. Solutions à vocation scientifique Ce constat, il le fait pour l'échiquier mondial, mais en pensant tout particulièrement à l'industrie papetière canadienne; « une industrie en processus de réinvention après la récession, une industrie qui est promise à un bel avenir, car elle investit sérieusement dans la recherche de solutions à vocation scientifique par le biais de réseaux comme FIBRE ou FPInnovations – pour ne nommer que ces programmes ». C'est par ce type d'initiative que le secteur forestier canadien pourra répondre aux besoins de ses partenaires gouvernementaux et de membres industriels. Pour une organisation comme Kruger, ces réseaux deviennent essentiels pour faciliter l'échange entre experts et pour stimuler la recherche appliquée. « C'est justement ce qui rend si intéressante la participation à l'Association technique des pâtes et papiers du Canada (PAPTAC); ces regroupements sont essentiels pour canaliser et coordonner les énergies d'un si grand nombre d'acteurs » dit-il en insistant sur l'importance de la recherche de nouveaux produits et de nouveaux procédés pour voir à la valorisation des activités de transformation de la fibre.

Le Canada garde son avantage concurrentiel Pour Daniel Archambault, le Canada n'a jamais perdu son avantage au plan mondial. Cet avantage se décline sous différentes perspectives. La première concerne la qualité et l'abondance de la fibre puis, dans une hiérarchie d'avantages, viendrait soit les pratiques

de régénérations durables maintenant monnaie courante ou le coût de l'énergie qui est très compétitif. À ces avantages se rajoute une main-d'œuvre qualifiée soutenue par un bon système d'éducation. Sur le plan logistique, le Canada a des ressources qui lui permettent d'exporter ses produits à travers le monde. Enfin, les gouvernements fédéral et provinciaux investissent beaucoup en recherche sur les technologies de transformation et encouragent et soutiennent l'industrie ce qui compte énormément pour transformer la fibre à des coûts concurrentiels.

Au large de la bioéconomie : suivre le cap La demande mondiale pour la pâte, le papier et le bois d'œuvre se maintient bien que les centres de croissance économique se soient déplacés. C'est pour cette raison que la croissance des entreprises canadiennes viendra de plus en plus de l'exploitation de nouveauxsegments de marché et vers l'exploitation de produits sophistiqués comme le bois d'ingénierie, la nanocellulose cristalline ou les filaments cellulosiques. Daniel Archambault croit que l'industrie devra prendre un virage avec un œil sur les phares de la bioéconomie, comme un bateau voguant une fois la nuit tombée. « Je pense entre autres à la bioénergie, aux biocarburants – à la pyrolyse – ou encore aux produits bio et biochimiques. »

Développements récents chez Kruger Parmi les plus récentes évolutions de l'entreprise, on note l'agrandissement de l'usine de Kruger à Memphis, au Tennes-

see qui a été financé en partie par un prêt de la Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec. La nouvelle usine comprend trois machines à papier et des chaînes de transformation. Cet agrandissement s'accompagne tout particulièrement de l'installation d'une nouvelle machine de papiers tissu. L'objectif de l'investissement est de faire passer la capacité totale de 57 000 à 117 000 tonnes métriques (papiers hygiéniques, papiers-mouchoirs, essuie-tout, serviettes de table). On note aussi l'inscription en bourse d'une partie des activités de l'entreprise (Papiers Tissu KP inc.). Cette société a été créée exclusivement aux fins d'acquérir une participation dans Produits Kruger S.E.C. – fabricant de produits de papier.

Le respect de l'environnement : « une de nos plus grandes fiertés ». « Nous travaillons à réduire notre empreinte environnementale depuis plusieurs années et nous y sommes arrivés à coups d'investissements majeurs dans nos usines. » Selon Daniel Archambault l'industrie en entier a adopté de grands changements afin de répondre à des normes environnementales toujours plus sévères. « Parmi nos plus grandes fiertés, il faut certainement compter sur la baisse considérable d'utilisation de carburant fossile dans nos opérations. » Kruger utilise par exemple sa propre biomasse forestière et consent des efforts considérables en matière d'efficacité énergétique. « Des plans de cogénération sont en place dans plusieurs de nos instal-


PaperWeek Canada 2014

lations. » Le rôle de Kruger Énergie comme unité d'affaires de la société y est pour quelque chose dans le sens où elle illustre l'expertise développée par Kruger dans le domaine des énergies renouvelables. Kruger Énergie est la résultante d'une diversification des activités de la compagnie. Son mandat est de croitre dans le domaine des énergies vertes (hydroélectrique, éolien, cogénération, biomasse et biogaz) bien avant de fournir de l'énergie aux installations des autres unités. Pour l'instant l'autoconsommation est très utile pour répondre aux objectifs de réduction des gaz à effet de serre, mais l'entreprise mise aussi sur la revente de l'énergie produite au sein de ses 34 sites de production. Au total, la puissance installée est de plus de 520 MW.

Renouvellement de la main d'œuvre « Comme plusieurs acteurs du milieu, nous constatons que le renouvellement de la main d'œuvre sera un défi important de la prochaine décennie. Il en va de la pérennité de l'industrie, explique-t-il. » L'Association des produits forestiers du Canada parle de 60 000 nouveaux emplois d'ici 2020. Si la main-d'œuvre manque à l'appel et que la moyenne d'âge dans l'industrie est de 50 ans, aux yeux de Daniel Archambault, il faut d'abord retenir la main d'œuvre existante et Kruger adopte une foule de stratégies pour s'en assurer. « Parmi les mesures offertes chez nous il y a la possibilité de suivre différents cheminements de carrières au sein de toutes nos divisions. Ceci attire les candidats à une époque où les postes qui durent toute une vie ne sont plus monnaie courante. » La compétition est grande pour attirer la main-d'œuvre qualifiée dans différentes régions du pays.

métiers, même chose du côté des activités minières dynamisé par le développement du Nord. Il s'agit d'industries qui nécessitent l'apport d'une main d'œuvre très similaire : gestionnaires de projets, ingénieurs, ouvriers spécialisés, etc.

Diversification: la solution? Le récent programme d'expansion de Kruger lui a permis de réaliser une diversification équilibrée au plan industriel dans le but, notamment, de répartir les risques liés à la récession sur une plus large gamme de produits. Ce ralentissement économique, a certainement été un défi pour Kruger, toutefois, en favorisant la diversification, l'entreprise assure sa croissance et l'aide à mieux se protéger contre de futurs ralentissements économiques. « Entre 2009 et 2011 de nombreuses usines ont dû fermer à travers le pays, mais Kruger s'en est relativement bien tiré en comparaison avec ses concurrents. L'entreprise est le seul fabricant de papier journal au Canada et un des rares en Amérique du Nord qui n'a pas dû se placer sous la protection de la loi pour éviter la faillite. » Bien entendu, Kruger a dû faire des choix : réorganiser sa division du papier par exemple. Malgré les rationalisations d'effectifs inévitables, l'entreprise estime avec fierté avoir respecté toutes ses obligations envers ses employés : primes de séparation et bénéfices.

UNROLLED Program / Programme

Pour Daniel Archambault, PaperWeek Canada 2014 sera un moment charnière pour l'industrie à l'heure de la bioéconomie et à l'heure d'un redressement certain. Il rappelle que l'édition de 2013 a vraiment redonné des ailes à la conférence qui avait également souffert de la situation économique. « Après 2009, la semaine du papier était presque disparue, mais depuis trois ou quatre ans nous assistons à un véritable retour en force de l'événement, en février dernier nous pouvions vraiment sentir une nouvelle dynamique sur le plancher. » L'industrie se repositionne en fonction de l'innovation. Innovation dans les pratiques d'affaires et de gestion autant que dans les technologies et les processus de production. À ce sujet il y a beaucoup à apprendre des autres PAPTAC du monde croit Daniel Archambault. Pour lui, les regroupements industriels de pâtes et papiers des autres grandes régions productrices du monde, comme l'Europe ou le Japon, doivent continuer à partager leurs connaissances. « C'est particulièrement intéressant en matière de progrès technologiques », dit l'ingénieur. Il note d'ailleurs que les principales innovations, tant en matière de fabrication de papier qu'en matière de coupe du bois proviennent de recherches conduites par des réseaux scientifiques internationaux. Espérons qu'ils seront présents à PaperWeek.

Une présidence qui tombe sur une année bien spéciale Flatté d'avoir été choisi par PAPTAC pour assumer le poste de président du Conseil pour l'année 2013, Daniel Archambault prend donc une place importante pour une année d'importance. La prochaine édition de PaperWeek Canada intitulé « L'innovation en mouvement » marquera le centième anniversaire de la conférence canadienne des pâtes et papiers.

Point of View Point de vue

Richard Garneau, President and Chief Executive Officer, Resolute Forest Products Evolution of the paper industry in Canada and around the world While there will always be a need for pulp and paper products, the decline in market demand for certain paper grades will undoubtedly continue. There is no question that it is a challenging environment where the companies that succeed will be those that can create the best efficiencies in their operations. Given current market realities, financial gains will be made through operating efficiencies, including process innovations and improvements, cost-reduction initiatives and other synergies. On the subject of industry consolidation: I don’t believe it’s over. While we’ve seen a great deal of merger, acquisition and divestiture activity in our sector over the past decade, there are very likely a few more rounds of consolidation to come that will further reshape the industry for the future.

Innovations and diversification The value of Canada’s forest resources will only continue to grow. As an industry, ensuring the raw input – every tree we harvest – and the output from our processes are used to their fullest potential will be critical to our long-term viability.The bio-revolution is already underway, and the industry is well-positioned to not only contribute to it, but to benefit from it by diversifying our activities into bio-energy and the growing os-ibilities surrounding innovative uses for the raw materials used in our pulp and

30

paper operations. Dynamic growth opportunities exist to develop new cellulose-based products that can be converted into bio-chemicals and used in surprising applications from tires and bulletproof vests to greener plastic alternatives. While the prospects aren’t yet fully developed, once there is a clearer understanding of the potential, greater capital investment is sure to follow. On the bio-energy side, the forest products industry has always used sawmill residue and waste for heating and other purposes. Today, wood residue has much more sophisticated uses. It is used to power electrical cogeneration facilities and to produce wood pellets, cellulosic ethanol, bio-oil and other bio-energy products – all of which represent new sources of revenue to our industry, as well as the opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint.

Economic impacts of environmental standards The regulatory environment in the pulp and paper industry is in continuous evolution – a reality which in itself has an economic impact as companies work to meet ever-changing regulatory standards. Among the most important changes – which have significant economic impact – are changes in the access to fiber supply. In Canada, particularly in Quebec, as more wood-lands are established as protected areas, fiber access is reduced and costs

are increased.

Vision of the future of the industry I have great confidence in the future of the forest products industry. We must ensure we are strategic about innovation and diversification opportunities, while keeping our focus on the everyday effort to be lean, low-cost producers. We must also work hard to position ourselves as attractive and prosperous employers, especially given the challenges we face in terms of workforce renewal. Over the next few years, the Canadian forest products industry will be looking to fill 60,000 positions. But we’re not the only sector facing a workforce shortage: The oil and gas, telecom and manufacturing sectors are all competing for the next generation of talent as well. I believe it is imperative we work hard to show and share our “green” credentials. Our industry has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by an impressive 60% since 1990 and is working to become carbon neutral by 2015. Canada has a an outstanding track record when it comes to sustainable forest management – and in fact, a 2004 Yale University study identified Canada’s forestry laws and regulations as being among the most stringent in the world. We are a more efficient, green and innovative industry than ever before, and the opportunities that lie ahead remain promising.

An Interview with Une entrevue avec

John D. Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer, Domtar

How do you see the evolution of the

paper industry in Canada, and the world in general? Adaptability has always been the name of the game for business and that’s even more the case these days in this industry. You`ve got paper demand going down in North America and machines being shut, while in Asia you`ve got demand going up and new machines being brought on line. So I think you`ll continue to see companies transforming both what they do and how they do it, faced with this dual global economic reality. For Domtar, Asia represents about 50% of our market pulp exports. The challenge for us is that this market is pretty opaque, so not only are the traditional pulp pricing cycles much harder to predict, we also have to be careful that the pulp we sell doesn’t come back to haunt us as paper imports. Could you talk about your strategy as per your position towards the diversification of products in Canada and the United States? Domtar`s journey of transformation has involved the re-purposing of existing assets to pulp and paper grades that march in line with GDP growth, it`s meant growing into growth markets of absorbent hygiene products in North America and Europe, and underlying it all it`s meant an unrelenting focus on productivity, quality and safety. We’ve taken our years of expertise in forest sustainability and applied the same, long-view principles to growing new business, sustainably.

What are the most promising markets, as some of the traditional ones are disappearing? Specialty papers – Our products go into making hospital gowns, q-tips, the backing on sticky notes, and the point-of-sale paper that is so ubiquitous in our daily shopping experience. All to say, today`s Domtar is much more than just copy paper! Bio-products – We now think of our mills as bio-refineries, not just facilities that manufacture pulp and paper. So at our Plymouth, North Carolina mill, for example, we have a commercial-scale lignin separation plant up and running, and we`re actively building a global market for this versatile industrial additive that also happens to be a fossil fuel replacement. How is your company facing the workforce renewal factor?

economic recession. So I had a clear vision of where I wanted to take the company, building on our fiber expertise to grow into the growth market of absorbent hygiene products. But I needed to execute this vision with an eye to the pressing reality of not only secular demand decline in our core business, but also a recessionary environment where our big customers like banks were cutting back and white paper orders along with it. It was this balancing act of the short and long-term that has been the biggest challenge. I will add that this had everything to do with the outside context, not the willingness of my colleagues to embrace change and build a business for the 21st century. What does the centennial of this event mean to you? A reminder of the depth of the roots of pulp and paper in this country, and that we have so much to build on in terms of transforming the industry for the next100 years. It also just happens to be the 100th anniversary of Domtar’s presence in Montreal, so this milestone, this looking back to look forward, is something that we share.

Head on! We have a number of mills facing the silver tsunami in a very real way, half their workforce will need to be replaced within a decade because of the retiree demographic bulge. So this isn`t just an HR issue, it`s an operational issue, it`s a safety issue, it`s a business sustainability issue. We used to have the luxury of two to three years of learn-by- What does the theme of this conference osmosis on-the-job training…the reality ``Innovation in Motion`` represent for you now is that time hase for the 21st century. as it relates to this industry?
