Norske Skog Boyer paper mill is situated in southern Tasmania and produced Australia’s first newsprint in 1941. Boyer Mill is located on the Derwent River, near the township of New Norfolk (approximately 35 km from Hobart). Annual production is around 290 000 tonnes of newsprint, book grades, and lightweight coated grades.
The mill currently generates process steam from its main coal-fired boiler which is used for drying paper and process heat. A considerable volume of steam is produced during the manufacture of mechanical pulp, due to the inherent moisture content of the wood chips. The project was contracted to deliver 250 000 tonnes of abatement in the fourth auction in November 2016. It will recover waste thermal energy to produce clean process steam, reducing the demand for on-site steam generation.
This project will be conducted under the Industrial Electricity and Fuel Efficiency method of the Emissions Reduction Fund and will run for seven years.
