APP starts up two Andritz mechanical pulping lines in Guangxi, China

April 04, 2011 - 01:55

GRAZ, Austria, April 4, 2011 (Press Release) -Two P-RC APMP mechanical pulping lines delivered by ANDRITZ to APP's mill in Jingui, Guangxi Province, China, have been started up in record time. The guaranteed production of 750 admt/d was achieved within only 2.5 months for Line #1 and 1.5 months for Line #2. This sets production records for single mechanical pulping lines in China. In addition, excellent pulp properties are being reported.

Focus on ‘green' production

The lines at Jingui process eucalyptus fiber from plantations. A remarkable aspect is that the mechanical pulping lines operate totally free of silicates within the bleaching process. Effluents are recovered to reduce the environmental impact. White liquor is retrieved in the chemical recovery cycle and reused in the mechanical pulping process to a very large extent, resulting in a significant reduction in operating costs.
