International technology Group Andritz has received an order from Monalisa Co. Ltd., Seoul, South Korea, to supply the key components for a new sludge dewatering process to be installed at its tissue production line in Jeonju. Start-up is scheduled for the end of 2017.
The tissue production line produces sanitary tissue products using mixed office waste and virgin pulp as raw material. In order to achieve optimum results in dewatering of the sludge coming from the recycled fiber processing line, Andritz will supply a thickening drum and sludge screw press. As a result, the costs for transporting the sludge to a subsequent treatment facility will be cut significantly.
The technological features of the dewatering equipment as well as information and impressions gained from a previous visit to a reference plant in Korea were decisive in the customer placing the order with Andritz.
Monalisa Co. Ltd. is an established producer of domestic hygiene products sold under several brand names, including "Bellagio", "The Rich House", and "Nox Premium". The company is based in Seoul, South Korea.
