The drying process is a highly cost intensive part in paper production as up to 75% of the overall thermal energy are applied there. Due to the fact that energy is getting more and more expensive, a project has been started by the Institute for Pulp, Paper and Fibre Technology, Graz University of Technology, Austria to optimise the drying section in terms of energy consumption.
