Andritz to rebuild OCC line in Italy

The equipment company is working with paper company Cartiere del Polesine on the project.


Equipment company Andritz, Austria, has received an order from the Italy-based paper company Cartiere del Polesine to rebuild an existing old corrugated container (OCC) line, including reject treatment, at its mill in Adria, Italy.

In addition to all main process components, Andritz will install two PrimeScreen X machines for primary-stage fine screening as well as fractionation. Startup for the new line is expected to begin early next year.

The line will have an annual production capacity of 400 metric tons of OCC and will be able to accept special waxed paper as a raw material.

Cartiere del Polesine is a producer of containerboard products. The company operates four machines at two paperboard mills and produces 300,000 metric tons of containerboard per year.
