PULP Optimal, cost-effective alkali source for pulp bleaching

Pulp bleaching is a necessary process for the production of both graphic paper and some packaging board grades.  EcoBright™ is an optimal source of alkali in pulp bleaching, helping to save costs, reduce chemical consumption, increase fiber strength and minimize effluents.

EcoBright™ is a stabilized magnesium hydroxide solution that is not only environmentally friendly, but delivers cost savings by:

  • Elimination of magnesium sulfate
  • Significant reduction of caustic soda
  • Reductions of silicate and/or hydrogen peroxide

Using Ecobright™ in pulp bleaching can result in quality benefits including:

  • Higher brightness values and improved pulp dewatering
  • Process benefits such as higher yield, reduced oxalate deposits and less carryover to the paper machine
  • Environmental benefits like cleaner water circuits and lower COD/BOD in effluents from the bleaching process


Based on these benefits, it is likely that pulp mill downtime due to process equipment maintenance is reduced by the use of EcoBright™, which has a positive impact on overall productivity.

No matter the mechanical or chemical pulp application, let our innovative team help determine or create a solution specifically for you.
