Benefits and Advantages of Agripulp
Arbokem's patented pulping technology is energy-efficient
There is no solid waste for the landfill. We turn the organic and inorganic
chemicals leftover from the pulping process into fertilizer.
The process includes co-manufacturing of bioenergy. The agri-pulp production
plant is energy self-sufficient. It produces its own steam and power
to run the plant.
There are considerable financial benefits. Producers who use biomass
for energy production receive greenhouse gas emission credits (cash).
The plant has a small environmental footprint. Manufacturing operations
are on a community-based scale.
Clean Technology and Manufacturing
Different types of agricultural fibres can be pulped
in existing mills and the equipment can be used with
little or no modifications.
Our bleaching process is chlorine-free. No dioxins would be produced.
All process effluents would be collected for processing into fertilizers
and other valuable industrial chemicals.
We use water sparingly. The plant does not make a big demand on the
fresh water supply.
Gas emissions are minimal. There are no unpleasant smells.
The plant does not generate solid waste. There is no charge on the
Farmers would be well-paid for their straw.
They would be invited to participate in the downstream operation of
the agri-pulp and paper business.
The farmers would gain additional income from the sale of their straw.
The entire crop they grow would be used.
New, full-time technology-based jobs would be created
in rural communities.
These communities would thrive with small-scale manufacturing operations.
Young people would be able to live and work in their own communities.The
rural way of life would continue.
There could be centralized integrated pulp and paper
operations or a network of community pulping operations
could cooperate with papermakers to produce agri-pulp
The agripulp paper would be priced competitively.
The market for paper keeps expanding.
The profit margin would be good, in commensuration with the use of
the novel technology concept and product design.
