ANDRITZ – the international technology group has recently received an order from Papel Prensa S.A. to supply a complete old corrugated containers (OCC) line including a reject handling system to its mill in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
In its initial production phase, the new line will process 180 t/d of local OCC. The line’s processing capacity can be easily increased through a minor adjustment to configuration to support the expected rise in pulp demand for the production of corrugated paper. The new line will provide high pulp quality at cost-efficient and resource-saving operation, with the latest technology available.
Diego Colabardini, CEO of Papel Prensa S.A., says: “Our goal is to produce top-quality paper while reducing our environmental footprint through the efficient use of energy and natural resources, based on our strategy of promoting circular economy in a sustainable business. ANDRITZ’s advanced technology and extensive experience in pulping will help us achieve this goal.”
ANDRITZ’s scope of supply comprises
The complete project or the start-up of the new line is scheduled for 2024. This particular order further strengthens ANDRITZ’s presence in the South American recycled pulp market.
Papel Prensa S.A. is a leading Argentinean paper manufacturing company with the country’s highest paper production volume. The company specialises in the production of newsprint, printing paper, and packaging paper.
