The systems used to produce Eldorado’s high-quality pulp include wood processing, cooking, washing, screening, and bleaching technologies delivered by ANDRITZ PULP & PAPER. The single-vessel continuous digester with Lo-Solids® cooking and the accompanying fiberline technologies represent state-of-the-art process technology providing the best yield, washing efficiency, and minimal chemical consumption. The fiberline is fed with high-quality chips from a woodyard consisting of three horizontally fed ANDRITZ HHQ Chippers. ANDRITZ also supplied the complete pulp drying plant (two drying machines) and the entire white liquor plant, including the world’s largest lime kiln.

With annual production of approximately 1.5 million tons of bleached eucalyptus market pulp, Eldorado is currently the largest single-line pulp mill in the world. With this order, ANDRITZ once again confirms its leading global position as a supplier of complete pulp production lines.
