GRAZ, Austria, Dec. 9, 2010 (Press Release) -

International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Tamil Nadu Newsprint & Papers Limited (TNPL) to supply a three-loop deinking plant for the TNPL mill in Kagithapuram, India. This will be the first three-loop deinking plant to be commissioned in India. Start-up is planned for the end of 2011.

The deinking plant, with a three loops and two disperser configuration, has a capacity of 300 t/d and is part of a program to extend the paper production capacity of the TNPL mill from 245,000 to 400,000 t/a. The raw materials used in the DIP line are 80% sorted office waste and 20% magazine grades. The deinked pulp will be used to produce high-quality writing and printing papers.

ANDRITZ has also been assigned to supervise erection work and start-up. The deinking plant reflects the latest state of the art in terms of environmental protection, as well as energy and water consumption. The supply of this first 3-loop DIP line to India is an important step for ANDRITZ in this growth market.
