For the fourth time in four years, Chinese straw-based particleboard specialist Wanhua Ecoboard has ordered a straw-based particleboard plant from Dieffenbacher. The greenfield project at the Tonglin site in the Anhui province is scheduled to start production in December, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Highlighting the order is a 28 m long CPS+, the first of Dieffenbacher’s new generation of continuous press to be delivered in China. Equipment for flaking, including three MRZ 1500 knife ring flakers with the FlowOptmizer material feeder, were also ordered along with a dryer, forming station and forming line.
Dieffenbacher and Wanhua have also agreed on the delivery of two additional plants, numbers five and six. Again, a CPS+ will be used for both projects. Commissioning of these plants is planned for 2019.
