ANDRITZ has confirmed it has received an order from Lipy Paper Mills Ltd to supply wastepaper processing systems to the mill in Changine, Modonpur, Kanchpur, Sonargaon.
These are the first Andritz RCF (Recycled Fibre) lines for Bangladesh. Start-up is scheduled for the third quarter in 2023. Andritz has said it will supply key equipment for two RCF lines, featuring a total capacity of 150 tons per day and processing LOCC (Local OCC) and MOW (Mixed Office Waste) as raw material for production of testliner, writing and printing paper.
Shahiar Hasan Khan, Deputy Managing Director, Lipy Paper Mills, says, “Andritz convinced us because of its energy-saving technology for screening and flotation and its focus on minimum fibre loss. In addition, with the Ultra High Dispersion we’ll be able to keep steam demand at a low level. All these topics are strategic development targets for an aspiring company like Lipy Paper Mills.”
Lipy Paper Mills was established in 2016 by Lipy Group, a family-owned Bangladeshi enterprise and successful player in the domestic paper market.
