Siam Cellulose’s Ban Pong pulp mill in Thailand will produce 70,000 tons per year of eucalyptus pulp with the help of a new pulp cooking plant, which is scheduled to start up in December 2016. The CompactCooking G2 cooking plant will replace the existing tube digesters.

Valmet’s two-vessel system consists of an ImpBin for impregnation and a digester for cooking of chips. The ImpBin technology enables higher kappa level with low reject content. Using a two-vessel design ensures well-defined impregnation and cooking zones. Effective impregnation will produce pulps with high yield and excellent quality.
