(PRESS RELEASE) GRAZ, 22-Dec-2021 — /EuropaWire/ — ANDRITZ GROUP, Austria-based international technology group active in the supplies of plants, equipment, systems and services across multiple industries, has announced it has been tasked for the upgrade of the evaporation plant at Mondi Group’s Frantschach mill in Austria.

The upgrade to the new plant components will allow even more efficient and sustainable pulp production. The state-of-the-art ANDRITZ equipment increases the amount of heat extracted and thus reduces the need for steam. At the same time, the environmental impact is further reduced by lowering the chemical oxygen demand (COD) for biological wastewater treatment.

The ANDRITZ scope of supply for the project includes two new evaporation units, a secondary surface condenser, new pumps, vapor ducts, and circulation pipes.

This evaporation plant upgrade order was the result of close cooperation between ANDRITZ and Mondi Frantschach when defining the best solution for sustainable pulp production and considering options for increased capacity as well as for layout, process and cost.

Mondi Frantschach produces high-quality packaging paper, including sack kraft paper and machine-glazed specialty kraft paper. The mill also produces specialty market pulp.
