Physical Description

abstract
Black liquor is a toxic slurry produced by paper pulping mills, and is composed of hydrocarbons and sodium based salts. Currently paper pulping mills burn this black liquor to produce energy. This process emits toxic chemicals into the environment and is often very costly. Woody’s Black Liquor proposes an alternate process that will be more environmentally friendly and cost effective. In this process, black liquor is gasified via combustion to produce synthesis gas (a mixture of CO and H2) and green liquor (a mixture of the incombustible chemicals found in black liquor). Methanol is then produced from the synthesis gas and sold. In this presentation, Woody’s Black Liquor will describe the process in detail, provide an economic analysis, list environmental concerns, and give final recommendations.
