International technology Group Andritz received an order from Danalakshmi Paper Mills to rebuild an existing pulp deinking line in Tamil Nadu, India. The upgrade aims at improving the quality of the waste paper stock used for paper production. Start-up is scheduled for April 2015.
The scope of supply includes two SelectaFlot flotation stages, a thickener, a ModuScreen TC tailing screen, a cleaning plant, and pumps. After the rebuild, the plant will produce newsprint as well as printing and writing grades using sorted office paper, printer’s offset cuttings, coated book stock, and notebook.
Danalakshmi is one of India’s leading newsprint manufacturing companies, supplying newsprint grades to the local market as well as exporting its products to several countries in Asia and in Africa. The paper mill has a capacity of 40,000 tons per year.
