ANDRITZ will supply a complete biomass gasification plant and a new biomass handling line to Klabin, the biggest paper producer, exporter and recycler in Brazil.
The plant will be built at Klabin’s Ortigueira mill, with a 51 MW gasification plant, a belt dryer, a multifuel lime kiln burner and biomass handling equipment with auxiliaries. By replacing 100% of the heavy fuel oil currently burned in one of the mill’s lime kilns, the Andritz gasification plant will significantly reduce the mill’s carbon footprint.
Andritz was one of the main suppliers of major process technologies and equipment areas to the Puma II project at Klabin’s Ortigueira mill. It also supplied technologies and equipment to the company’s Puma I project, which was launched in 2016.
