Control of Sckies

Main activity: Stickies removal: Reduces the frequency of machine stops forcleaning and the chemicals used for cleaning, reduces coagulants and flocculantsin water clarification, reduces the production of sludge and at the same timereduces the BOD and COD of the process water.

Generation of organic products designed for the reduction of micro stickies inpaper preparation processes from recycled paper. Its action is enhanced by the addition of a biomolecule with surfactant properties that improves the release of stickies from the fiber surface and facilitates their removal.

The mechanisms of action are:

  • Release of stickies from the fiber surface.
  • Dispersion (micronization) of the stickies in particles not visible to the human eye.
  • Deactivation of the stickies by coating them with a surfactant that prevents their agglomeration causing them to lose their stickiness or tack.


  • Increases machine productivity by reducing machine downtime for cleaningof garments due to the presence of stickies.
  • Increases the productivity of converting processes by reducing sheet blowouts due to the presence of stickies on the sheet.
  • Improves the quality of the finished paper as there are no voids.
  • Reduces the accumulation of components that cause secondary stickies that travel in the water, reducing the doses of coagulants and flocculants in the clarification process, thus improving BOD and COD in the effluents.
  • It allows to reduce the % of enclosure of process waters and therefore asaving in its replacement and treatment costs.
  • Easy to apply.

Paper Disintegrant

Product: Biorase CD-1: Reduces secondary fiber losses in pulper rejects.


  • The product Biorase C D1 is an organic complex specifically designed as anaid in the pulping of recycled material (fibers that offer resistance topulping). The product enhances the wetting of the recycled fiber in the pulping process, similar to the way it is done in nature without the need to use alkaline agents, allowing the cellulose to be easily separated from the non-fibrous material which is removed in the pulper rejects in less time, making the fiber stock of those accepted freer and more fluid.
  • Due to the effects that the Biorase C D1 product has on the fibers (wetting and fibrillation), it offers benefits in the subsequent processes, as in the case of tissue paper production plants, such as in the de-inking process and subsequent bleaching, and the same as in the packaging paper production plants, it increases the stock drainage speed and, in the end, the mechanical properties of the paper.


  • Allows a better use of the fiber that enters the pulping process by reducingthe amount of cellulose that is lost in the pulper rejects.
  • Eliminates the use of caustic soda in the pulping process, avoiding thestiffness and yellowing of the fiber that it confers. This makes the pulping process more natural and reduces the chemical risk to operators.
  • It increases the wetting capacity of the fiber, which facilitates its separation from contaminants, reducing pulping times, and by making the fiber stock fluid, it facilitates pumping to subsequent processes, reducing energy costs.
  • It allows a better orientation or handling of the fiber (freer and more fluid inthe pumping of the stock).
  • Improves physical properties without being its main function.
  • Reduces the costs of defibering in the pulping of recycled paper by reducing pulping cycle times, reducing energy costs that move the pulper motors and transfer pumps, reducing the trips of the rejected disposal equipment and operating personnel.
  • It improves the appearance of the finished paper, as the fiber gains whiteness points at the exit of the pulper.
  • With its application, cleaner effluents are produced, reducing the contribution to BOD and COD.
  • With the application of Biorase C D1 Disintegrant, it allows pulping papers with high wet strength content that could not be pulped before and that usually have a high content of long fiber that can be used for paper quality.
Virgin Fiber Bleaching

Product: Biorase A -02.


Biorase A -02 is a particular enzymatic product with specific activity that acts in the paper pulp bleaching process, this enzyme has a specific activity; however, its collateral effects technically identified and evidenced in celluloses obtained from wood, suggest a very interesting formula for continuous improvement to pulp manufacturing processes from celluloses obtained from eucalyptus, pine and sugarcane bagasse type woods.

Biorase A-02 is a thermostable hemicellulose, prepared to increase the whiteness in pulps at relatively high temperatures, it opens the pores of the fibers facilitating the diffusion of the lignin to the water to handle greater dilution.

Biorase A-02 acts on the separation of compounds bound to the fibers and the degradation of these interfering substances such as chromophore groups (such asxylans, hemicelluloses, lignin), waxes, heavy alcohols, tocopherols and others. Fibrillation and hydration of these are the new transformations that will be presented in the process, conditions that should be taken advantage of to improve efficiency and move the cost/benefit ratio to an optimization in the products applied for pulp bleaching; in addition to the improvement of drainage and oxygenation of the waters.
