Lecta Group’s Torraspapel combined pulp and paper mill in Zaragoza, Spain will receive a recovery boiler upgrade from Valmet. The delivery will include a comprehensive recovery boiler upgrade with new secondary and tertiary air systems, new black liquor sprayer stations, modifications in the water side of the boiler and new smelt spouts. The upgrade will increase the recovery boiler’s capacity from today’s 420 tds/d including ashes to 480 tds/d including ashes and reduce the mill’s emissions. The primary target of the upgrade is to increase the recovery boiler’s black liquor capacity. The upgrade will also reduce the mill’s emission levels and improve the water side of the boiler, hence enabling the capacity increase. The upgrade will take place during the mill’s annual shutdown in October 2023.
