A Method for Integrated Optimization of Chlorine Dioxide Delignification of Bagasse Pulp

Yongjun Yin, Xueping Song, Chongxin Li, Shuangxi Nie


Chlorine dioxide bleaching is an important component of elemental chlorine-free bleaching. A method is introduced in this work to optimize process conditions for chlorine dioxide delignification based on nonlinear programming and response surface analysis. An energy consumption model for chlorine dioxide bleaching is established, as well as statistical models for the brightness, viscosity, and absorbable organic halogen content with the process conditions. The results from the model predict that the cost can be reduced compared to the optimization results of the response surface analysis and experiments.
