A South American startup pulp mill is getting a new recovery boiler and evaporation plant from Metso.
Helsinki-based Metso received the order from newcomer Eldorado Celulose e
Papel S.A., in Trés Lagoas, Brazil. The Recox recovery boiler for the
greenfield site will have the largest capacity of steam generation on the
American continent, according to Metso. The evaporation plant will be the
largest single-line evaporation plant in the world, with six thermal stages and
capacity of 1,600 tons/hr.
“The capacity and features of the equipment supplied by Metso relate not
only to the return on investment, but also to the search for solutions that
bring high technology to sustainable industrial processes," says Carlos
Monteiro, Eldorado’s industrial director. "An example is the recovery
boiler supplied by Metso, which represents a clean-energy generating process
using a renewable raw material, in this case, eucalyptus biomass residues."
The plant is scheduled to begin operating in fourth quarter 2012.
