Kadant has launched its Upcycling reject handling line as an integral part of its fibre processing offerings. The company shares in a press statement that Upcycling was established to provide innovative, cost-effective solutions for reject handling challenges commonly found in the manufacturing of pulp and paper.

Kadant’s Upcycling reject handling technologies provide advanced solutions for coarse reject handling, fine reject handling and wastewater management. Innovation will be a focus of the Upcycling initiative, including the development of a thermoplastic system that will recover and process plastic waste as part of the comprehensive waste management solution.

To identify waste challenges and improve financial performance at pulp and paper mills, a specialized Upcycling team reportedly conducts an audit that includes assessing waste disposal costs and environmental impacts. Upcycling experts then analyze the audit findings to provide a customized solution for transforming waste into valuable products such as metals, wires and plastic pellets.
