Andritz AG : ANDRITZ has successfully started up a new reject compacting system for SAICA, Spain

11/05/2012 | 04:53am US/Eastern
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.

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.
