Graz, Austria, 04 May 2010 -- International technology Group Andritz has been awarded orders by SCA of Sweden. The first is to supply a new lime kiln with fuel handling and white liquor filtration equipment to SCA’s Östrand pulp mill. The delivery is part of SCA’s BioLoop project, in which the mill will change its systems from oil to renewable fuels to enhance the general environmental friendliness of the mill.

The new lime kiln will be fueled by wood dust, which will lead to lower chemical and maintenance costs for the mill. The scope of supply also includes wood dust burners for the existing power boiler. The white liquor filter is scheduled to be started up in spring 2011, and the lime kiln in autumn 2011.
