Altri Celbi in Portugal achieves new production world record

Following successful modernization of the bleached eucalyptus kraft pulp drying line by Andritz, Portuguese pulp producer Celbi set an outstanding production world record of 2,456 admt/d at its Leirosa mill, Portugal, on March 23, 2019.

In terms of specific drying capacity, Celbi achieved 503.3 tons per day and meter of working width on the upgraded drying plant of 4.88 meters sheet width. Based on these results, it would be possible to produce more than 5,000 admt/d on a single line with a 10-meter working width. This would mean an annual drying plant capacity of more than 1.5 million tons on one single line.

Celbi was started up successfully after extensive reconstruction in 2015 and has achieved several production records since then. The company is one of the most efficient global producers of eucalyptus pulp, with an installed production capacity of 790,000 admt/y, and is recognized worldwide for its high-quality products and excellent customer service.
