Elementary Chlorine Free. ECF pulp is bleached without using elemental chlorine (chlorine gas).
Elemental Chlorine Free. Pulp that is bleached without chlorine gas.
ELEMENTAL CHLORINE FREE. ECF papers are made exclusively with pulp that uses chlorine dioxide, but not elemental chlorine gas, rather than elemental chlorine gas as a bleaching agent. This virtually eliminates the discharge of detectable dioxins in the effluent of pulp manufacturing facilities.
Elemental Chlorine Free. Bleaching process which uses Chlorine dioxide as opposed to elemental chlorine gas.
(Elemental Chlorine Free): Pulp bleached with chlorine dioxide or other chlorinated compounds, which does not use elemental chlorine gas.
Elemental Chlorine Free. The more common name for molecular chlorine free, and a bleaching that doesn't use chlorine gas. Champion is a leader in ECF technology, using chlorine dioxide rather than elemental chlorine in the pulp and bleaching processes.
Elemental chlorine free: Paper made from a bleaching process that uses chlorine dioxide typically in combination with oxygen, hydrogen peroxide and sodium hydroxide. The bleaching sequence can also, though less common, incorporate ozone. ECF bleaching does not use chlorine gas.
A common definition for pulp bleached without using elemental chlorine. Originally any of the bleaching techniques for chemical pulp, when no molecular (elemental) chlorine is used.
Woodpulps bleached without the use of chlorine gas, a product found to cause toxins in pulp mill effluents.
Elemental chlorine free. Chemical pulp bleached using chlorine dioxide, thereby avoiding the use of elemental chlorine
Elemental chlorine free. Pulp bleached without the use of any elemental chlorine. However, chlorine compounds (e.g. chlorine dioxide) may be used in the bleaching process. See also TCF
Elemental Chlorine Free. Paper pulp bleached without the use of elemental chlorine but instead using some chlorine dioxide, along with non-chlorine agents such as oxygen. Pulps using ECF methods contain up to 0.5kg of AOX per tonne of air-dried pulp.
Take a deep breath: this refers to ‘Elementary Chlorine Free' (phew). It covers a bleaching process used to make pulp, and means no “hardcore” chlorine is used.
(Elemental Chlorine-Free) Used to describe pulp bleaching processes that do not use any elemental chlorine, although chlorine compounds like chlorine dioxide may be used.
(Elemental chlorine free) bleaching uses chlorine dioxide, thereby avoiding the use of elemental chlorine.
Elemental Chlorine-Free. Used to describe pulp bleaching without the use of any elemental chlorine, although chlorine compounds like chlorine dioxide may be used.
Pulp bleached without the use of chlorine gas. Known as 'Elemental Chlorine Free'.
Elemental chlorine-free bleaching. Bleaching in sequences not including elemental chlorine but using chlorine dioxide, e.g. D(EO)DD. Bleaching in sequences not including chlorine-containing substances at all is called TCF (totally chlorine-free bleaching)
See Elemental Chlorine Free
Elemental Chlorine Free. means virgin or recycled fiber that is bleached without the use of elemental chlorine. However, chlorine dioxide or other chlorine compounds can be used. This process significatntly reduces hazardous dioxins (by more than 90%), but does not completely eliminate them.
