Domtar has chosen Voith to provide a complete recycled stock preparation system for the recently announced conversion of the Kingsport Mill in Kingsport, Tennessee.
The system includes Voith's BlueLine products including water, sludge and reject handling systems which will maximize both efficiency and quality.
The installation of the new system is expected to be complete in 2022.
"Domtar and Voith have a longstanding relationship in many areas and we are happy to be partnering with them as they enter the containerboard market," said David Buchanan, President, Voith Paper North America. "This system will provide the machinery and technology so that their mill will operate with the highest quality fiber with minimum water and energy consumption. With our system, Domtar (domtar.com) will be able to produce an excellent sheet quality for their end customers."
