Nov 05, 2012. /Lesprom Network/. International technology Group Andritz has successfully started up a fibrous reject compacting line for S.A. Industrias Celulosa Aragonesa (SAICA) at its El Burgo de Ebro mill in Saragossa, Spain, as the company said in a press release received by Lesprom Network.
The three new Andritz Reject Compactors are part of an existing waste-to-power line and have a total capacity to process 500 t of wet rejects per day. The wet rejects consist of various fiber residues and plastics produced in a recycled fiber processing line at the mill, which is used in the production of industrial grades of paper. By removing the water and compacting the rejects, the heating value of the rejects is improved and SAICA obtains a higher electricity output from its power boiler and turbine-generator.
Andritz Pulp & Paper is one of the leading global suppliers of turnkey systems and services for the production of all types of pulp, paper, tissue paper, board, fiber-board (MDF), nonwovens, as well as of biomass boilers and gasifiers for energy production and of systems for the production of plastic films.
