A leading medium producing facility called on Novel to help with reducing mill energy consumption and to avoid significant capital cost associated with the installation of a new starch cooker. Using a “cold water soluble” tapioca starch, Novel was not only able to deliver on eliminating the need for a starch cooker, but also reduced mill steam consumption, eliminated fresh water usage, and improved sheet strength characteristics.
