Pulp & Paper


ReCon can execute challenging pulp and paper projects including engineering, procurement, construction, and maintenance (EPCM) projects.

ReCon provides a full range of integrated services including consulting and design-build of new facilities as well as retrofit and plant-betterment services. ReCon has extensive Paper experience encompassing the design and analysis of a wide variety of thermal and chemical unit operations employed in the manufacture of paper.

These address the preparation of its raw materials from trees or other natural resources via:

  • a pulping process
  • chemical and mechanical pretreatment of these recovered biopolymer (e.g. principally, although not solely, cellulose-based) fibers in a fluid suspension
  • the high-speed forming and initial dewatering of a non-woven web
  • the development of bulk sheet properties via control of energy and mass transfer operations as well as post-treatment of the sheet with coating¬†calendering
  • and other chemical and mechanical processes
