Andritz has received an order from the Italy-based paper company Cartiere del Polesine to rebuild an existing old corrugated container (OCC) line, including reject treatment, at its mill in Adria, Italy.
In addition to all main process components, Andritz will install two PrimeScreen X machines for primary-stage fine screening as well as fractionation. Start-up for the new line is expected to begin early next year.
When fully operational the production line will have a capacity of 400 metric tons of OCC per year. The line also will be able to accept special waxed paper as a raw material.
Cartiere del Polesine is a producer of containerboard products. The company operates four machines at two paperboard mills. The company produces around 300,000 tons of containerboard per year.
