Andritz and Alucha to supply technologies and equipment for pyrolysis of liquid packaging board rejects

July 28, 2014 - 07:30

GRAZ, Austria, July 16, 2014 (Press Release) - International technology Group ANDRITZ has concluded a cooperation agreement with recycling specialist Alucha, Spain, to supply new technologies and equipment for pyrolysis of rejects (waste) produced in the processing of liquid packaging board to make paper.

Pyrolysis of rejects leads to reduced operating costs in industrial plants, for example in the pulp and paper industry, and makes substantial contributions towards protecting the environment.

By treating rejects from liquid packaging board, the fibers are recovered here and the residual fraction is separated into aluminum, gas, and oil by means of pyrolysis. While the recycled aluminum can be sold, the pyrolysis gas and oil can be used to generate heat or electricity, thus reducing the total operating costs and conserving natural resources.

Based on its extensive know-how in the reject treatment sector, ANDRITZ will act as supplier as well as sales and license partner under this cooperation agreement. Alucha is one of the leading developers worldwide of pyrolysis processes for industrial applications.
