The sack paper production line has a capacity of 175 bdmt per day and uses a mixture of unbleached hardwood and softwood as raw material.

According to the technology company, Andritz will upgrade the existing two-stage, low-consistency refining process in an effort to achieve a “significant improvement” in the final product. The installation includes a ModuScreen CP, an Andritz Twin Wire Press with shredder, as well as an Andritz high-consistency 1C refiner to enhance the sack paper properties. The existing Andritz low-consistency TwinFlo refiner, supplied in 2015, will remain in the layout. Engineering, training, and advisory services for mechanical installation work, commissioning, and start-up are also part of the company’s scope of supply.

Mariysky Pulp and Paper Mill is a supplier of various paper products, such as wrapping paper, sack paper, writing paper, packaging paper and corrugated board.
