GRAZ, Austria , February 25, 2022 (press release) –

International technology group ANDRITZ has successfully started up a complete OCC line delivered on EPS (Engineering, Procurement, Supervision) basis to SCGP’s subsidiary, United Pulp and Paper Co., Inc. (UPPC) for its mill in Bulacan, the Philippines.

The stock preparation system features an ANDRITZ pulping system comprising a FibreSolve FSR pulper with FibreGuard detrashing system to provide top performance, even when handling highly contaminated furnish. Fractionators and fine screens are equipped with innovative PrimeRotors for excellent removal of stickies with lower energy consumption than conventional rotor types.

The new OCC line has a design capacity of 870 admt/d and processes OCC (Old Corrugated Container) and mixed wastepaper as raw material to produce corrugated medium. Detailed engineering and supply of all auxiliaries for the line were also part of the scope.

Pornchai Kumpeesirivutikul, Project Manager, United Pulp and Paper Co., Inc., says: “Despite the pandemic, our new line was started up successfully. ANDRITZ supervised the installation remotely and managed to support the start-up on site – this worked exceptionally well! We are absolutely convinced that we will achieve our profitability and sustainability goals in the very near future.”
