International technology Group Andritz has received an order from Monalisa Co. Ltd., Seoul, South Korea, to supply the key components for a new sludge dewatering process to be installed at its tissue production line in Jeonju. Start-up is scheduled for the end of 2017, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The tissue production line produces sanitary tissue products using mixed office waste and virgin pulp as raw material. In order to achieve optimum results in dewatering of the sludge coming from the recycled fiber processing line, Andritz will supply a thickening drum and sludge screw press. As a result, the costs for transporting the sludge to a subsequent treatment facility will be cut significantly.
Monalisa Co. Ltd. is an established producer of domestic hygiene products. The company is based in Seoul, South Korea.
Andritz Pulp & Paper is a leading global supplier of complete plants, systems, equipment, and comprehensive services for the production and processing of all types of pulp, paper, tissue, and cardboard.
