After a little more than one year of operation, the greenfield pulp mill of Eldorado Brasil in Três Lagoas, Brazil, set three consecutive records for daily pulp production in March 2014. On March 30, 2014, Eldorado produced 5,156 tons in a single day, breaking its own previous records set on March 20, 2014 (5,056 tons) and March 19, 2014 (4,990 tons). The company believes this level of production is a world record for single-line pulp production.

With annual production of approximately 1.5 million tons of bleached eucalyptus market pulp, Eldorado is currently the largest single-line pulp mill in the world.

The systems used to produce Eldorado’s high-quality pulp include wood processing, cooking, washing, screening, and bleaching technologies delivered by Andritz Pulp & Paper. The single-vessel continuous digester with Lo-Solids® cooking and the accompanying fiberline technologies represent state-of-the-art process technology providing the best yield, washing efficiency, and minimal chemical consumption. The fiberline is fed with high-quality chips from a woodyard consisting of three horizontally fed Andritz HHQ chippers. Andritz also supplied the complete pulp drying plant (two drying machines) and the entire white liquor plant, including the world’s largest lime kiln.
