The fiber line represents state-of-the-art process technology providing the best yield, washing efficiency, and minimal chemical consumption.
• Complete pulp drying plant including automated baling lines. The two dewatering machines (working width 6.67 m each) will be based on Twin Wire former technology that has already been proven in several high-capacity pulp mill projects around the world.

The plant will feature green liquor filtration based on X-Filter™ technology, the CD-Filter™ for white liquor filtration, and LMD-Filter™ for lime mud washing. The lime kiln will be the largest to be installed in South America.
