(Graz, Austria, Nov. 16, 2016) International technology Group Andritz has received an order from Cartulinas CMPC S.A. to upgrade the complete bleaching system at its mill in Maule, Chile, which processes 100% radiata pine for the production of softwood BTMP (bleached thermo-mechanical pulp). Start-up of the upgraded bleaching system is scheduled for the 4Q 2017.
The bleaching system upgrade by Andritz will lead to an increase in BTMP production from 30 to 37 admt/h, while at the same time substantially reducing energy consumption per ton of pulp produced.
Cartulinas CMPC S.A., Planta Maule, is one of the leading board producers in America.
Andritz Pulp & Paper is a leading global supplier of equipment, systems, and services for the production and processing of all types of pulps, paper, tissue, and cardboard. (Source: press release)
