ANDRITZ to supply Europe's largest FibreFlow drum pulper to DS Smith's paper mill in Porcari, Italy
June 27, 2023
International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from DS Smith to supply a complete stock preparation line and an innovative reject treatment system for the mill in Porcari that produces new packaging papers from 100% recycled paper.
The stock preparation line includes Europe's largest FibreFlow drum pulper.
The equipment provided by ANDRITZ will be used on the new paper machine, due to start up mid-2025, that will provide a range of paper grades for the FMCG and e-commerce sectors serviced by DS Smith.
Stefano Andreotti, Project Manager at DS Smith, says: "The new equipment from ANDRITZ, as well as helping us to recover more water, will help us capture, clean and use fibres that would normally get rejected in the paper making process, so they can be once again used in our recycling loops."
