ANDRITZ has successfully received the Final Acceptance Certificate for a biomass handling plant at Eldorado’s Onça Pintada site in Três Lagoas, Mato Grosso do Sul. This plant is part of the first thermoelectric power plant in Brazil to consume eucalyptus stumps and roots.

The plant will be able to generate 50 megawatts of electricity from an innovative source – eucalyptus stumps and roots, the parts of the trees not used in the pulp manufacturing process. This expands the capacity to generate energy from waste material originating from reforestation crops that are maintained by the company itself in the states of Mato Grosso do Sul and São Paulo.

The daily processing capacity is 1,500 tons of material that formerly went to waste in the forest – enough to generate the electricity needed to light up a city of 700,000 inhabitants in a fully sustainable way, and this power will also be fed to the Brazilian national grid.

ANDRITZ has played a key role in the project – from the EPC model to design and supply of the unique solutions and technologies required to implement a generating system for renewable energy. Among the innovations are the truck dumpers designed to receive the chips for feeding the boiler. These chips are delivered by large-capacity vehicles.

The receiving system consists of two truck dumpers coupled to respective hoppers. There is a belt conveyor to receive the material from these hoppers and transport it to the pile. A stacker-reclaimer with a capacity of up to 40,000 m³ has the functions to form the pile and feed a second belt conveyor, which is responsible for transporting the material to the power boiler.

The project is a pioneering one and the first to use residues left over from pulp production. It promotes sustainable power generation initiatives, drastically reducing the impact on the environment and encouraging energy generation and pulp production that respects the boundaries of natural resources renewal.

International technology group ANDRITZ recently received the Final Acceptance Certificate for the upgrade of two ANDRITZ P-RC APMP (Pre-Conditioning Refiner Chemical Alkaline Peroxide Mechanical Pulp) fiberlines delivered to APP’s Guangxi Jingui Pulp and Paper, Guangxi Province, China.

The fiberlines – originally supplied by ANDRITZ in 2010 and the first mechanical pulping systems ever supplied to APP – were rebuilt to expand the aggregate capacity significantly and thus meet the considerably raised mechanical pulp demand resulting from the customer’s new board production line.

The project comprised the rebuild of the chip pre-treatment system for optimum chemical impregnation and the upgrade of the existing high-consistency (HC) refining stages with advanced feeding systems to ensure high capacity and even feeding. A new fiber-steam separation stage contributes to energy-efficiency by maximum steam recovery and low fiber losses in the steam.

The successful start-up was managed by the mill staff, supported by experienced engineers from ANDRITZ China on site as well as with the remote support from ANDRITZ experts in Europe.

Guangxi Jingui Pulp and Paper was established in 2003 and is part of Asia Pulp and Paper (APP), a leading global player in the production of a broad range of tissue, packaging, and paper products.
