Partnership for sustainable industry renewal
Global megatrends are transforming the pulp and paper industry as we know it. Metso is committed to helping manufacturers meet growing and changing demands and grab a hold of the opportunities presented by a wide range of new emerging bioproducts.
While demand for traditional printing and writing paper may have declined, thanks to steady population growth and the explosion of online shopping and international shipping of packaged commodities, the demand for tissue and board are pushing overall demand up every year. Intelligent control valves help optimize the flow of materials throughout the modern bioproduct mill. A high-quality, stable process consumes less raw materials and optimizes energy consumption. These process attributes achievable with our valves save both money and the environment.
Addressing sustainability concerns while ensuring profitability is a major driver for the development of more efficient production processes. It is also one of the reasons behind the emergence of new ecological wood-based bioproducts, which in many cases are helping replace materials such as single-use plastics. Metso offers a comprehensive portfolio of valves products accompanied by service expertise and the latest digital tools, all aimed at helping customers make more with less.
Renewal is a serious business, as a rapidly evolving pulp, paper and bioproducts industry is being reinvented to help create sustainable success for the future.
Our valves are helping drive processes towards improved efficiency, reliability and environmental performance in the pulp, paper and bioproducts industry.

Renewal requires new digital tools and approaches
Digitalization didn’t kill the pulp and paper industry. In the hands of an experienced partner, it provides the tools needed to make the most of your process. Traditional pulp and paper processes, just like the many new bioproducts processes, can be improved by intelligent valves and real-time data.
The service and added value we can bring to the table early on in the mill planning phases is based on our expertise and digital tools designed to help collect and utilize accurate data. The right digital tools can help significantly reduce the planning and engineering time required, while ensuring a process running with the best possible valves for the job.
Over a mills lifecycle, optimizing process performance based on real-time data can yield tangible results in terms of profitability. More stable flow characteristics ensure process efficiency and the even and predictable quality of the output. Accurate process control data also enables the effective planning of predictive maintenance operations, reducing the risks of valve failure and expensive unplanned shutdowns.
