International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Södra, Sweden, to supply a bio-methanol cleaning and purification plant for Södra’s pulp mill in Mönsterås.

The bio-methanol treatment plant supplied by ANDRITZ is designed to produce 5,000 tons of bio-methanol per year. The plant is a key part of a new process producing sustainable bio-methanol from renewable raw material. Bio-methanol can be used in shipping, for example, as a stand-alone fuel, as well as for the production of biodiesel (RME), as an additive in petrol, or as a raw material in the chemical industry. The methanol produced is compliant with the IMPCA Reference Specifications for merchantable methanol. Start-up of the plant is scheduled for the third quarter of 2019.

The global methanol production is in the order of 80 million tons per year and is generated mostly from fossil raw materials. In the chemical wood pulping process, methanol is formed as a by-product that contains many impurities. This raw methanol is purified to a merchantable bio-methanol, which is chemically identical to fossil-based methanol. The bio-methanol generated contributes towards reducing the amount of fossil greenhouse gas emissions.

The current target of the European Union is to have 10% of the transport fuel of every EU country coming from renewable sources, such as biofuels, by 2020. The new EU Renewable Energy Directive 2 currently in preparation will significantly increase the share of advanced biofuels by 2030. “If Sweden is to achieve the fossil-free climate targets, there must be viable alternatives to the fossil-fuel products that are currently available. The investment in the new bio-methanol cleaning and purification plant contributes towards reaching this target. It is also a major part of Södra’s own strategy to be totally fossil-free by 2030,” said Henrik Brodin, Business Development Manager Energy of Södra.

“We are pleased to help Södra in achieving their sustainablilty targets with our innovative products and technologies. This is further proof of our excellent cooperation and partnership with Södra,” says Kari Tuominen, President and CEO of ANDRITZ Oy, Finland.

International technology Group ANDRITZ has officially launched the world’s most modern research center for tissue, the PrimeLineTIAC Tissue Innovation and Application Center, in Graz, Austria. The opening ceremony, attended by around 150 customers and other stakeholders from the tissue industry, was a great success. Together with the ANDRITZ experts and technical partner companies, the participants discussed the functions, designs, and features of the new PrimeLineTIAC and took a guided tour through the pilot plant. Several guest speakers also gave interesting inside views on developments in the tissue industry.

PrimeLineTIAC

The Tissue Innovation and Application Center comprises a complete, state-of-the-art tissue production line, including laboratory facilities for tests and trials to develop new products and processes in the tissue sector. It is available to tissue producers and suppliers, research and development companies, and universities. Thus, customers and developers can conduct tests and trials under many different conditions, for example to optimize fibers for a specific product, improve product qualities, increase dryness, and reduce energy consumption. The impact of variables such as stock preparation, chemicals, vacuum, machine clothing, pressing, and drying with hot air and steam can all be measured and evaluated accurately.

For ANDRITZ, data security and confidentiality have a high priority. To run the trials in a highly professional and confidential environment, ANDRITZ experts from R&D, the stock preparation, machine design and engineering, automation, and pumps departments are available for collaboration and discussions. Customers can also bring along their own team of specialists.

The PrimeLineTIAC has its own complete stock preparation line together with the approach flow system. Many different kinds of pulp can be processed in one production line, which is split into a separate short fiber and a long fiber line. In addition, all units are available in small industrial scale, creating an excellent environment for best possible fiber treatment and tests according to the individual needs of customers and products.

The tissue production line offers utmost flexibility for the production of conventional, textured, and structured (TAD) tissue. It currently features various configurations that are also available on the market as single-machine concepts. This means customers can run extensive trials with what could potentially be their future machine configuration. With a design speed of 2,500 m/min and a sheet width of 600 mm, the machine can be operated with either a suction press roll or a shoe press, a regular CrescentFormer or a vertical CrescentFormer, and with a 16 ft. steel Yankee or two 14 ft. TAD drums.

The Metris PrimeControl E automation hardware and software developed by ANDRITZ provides utmost flexibility in monitoring and controlling the various machine configurations as well as the stock preparation system, including alarm management, online documentation, and eco-monitoring for example.

Custom-tailored pump solutions convey stock suspensions with the required consistencies in all production stages. The pumps are equipped with sensors to obtain detailed measurements and provide precise pump control and regulating.

ANDRITZ collaborated with many key partners on this project, including Albany International Corp., Danfoss Drives, Fibria, IBS Paper Performance Group, Nash, Södra, Solenis, as well as Flowtec, Lantier, EDELVENT, and the Kumera Corporation. The PrimeLineTIAC is sponsored by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency FFG as part of its R&D infrastructure promotion program.

The PrimeDry Steel Yankee delivered by ANDRITZ has a diameter of 22 ft. and thus is the largest in the world for tissue applications. The combination with the steam-heated hood enables highly efficient drying with substantial energy savings compared with conventional drying sections with cast Yankee dryers and gas-heated-hoods. The steam-heated hood is equipped with an innovative, automatic cleaning system to ensure easy maintenance and safe operations.

The ANDRITZ PrimeLineST W22 has a design speed of 2,100 m/min and a width of 5.55 m. It will produce tissue with grammage of 15 g/m2 that is used for two-ply toilet paper.The scope of supply also included the complete stock preparation plant and approach flow system, which processes 100% short fiber (eucalyptus) as raw material. The centerpiece of the line is the ANDRITZ Papillon refiner, which treats fibers gently in the cylindrical refining zone in order to achieve superior fiber properties at low energy consumption.

“The early start-up was only possible because of our cooperation with ANDRITZ. We are now proud to have the world’s largest steel Yankee, which is predicted to enable efficient drying with substantial energy savings. Our target is “green production” by minimizing energy consumption, liquid and solid waste, effluents, and CO2 emissions. The new tissue machine will use 100% renewable energy generated from biomass and converted into steam. The project presents a very good example of environmental, economic, and social sustainability,” says Victor Coutinho, CEO, Carta Fabril.

ANDRITZ will upgrade the pulping process with a new detrashing system – comprising a FibreGuard Detrasher, a FibreWash Drum, and a Detrashing Pump – to increase pulp quality through early removal of non-disintegrated reject materials.

In the three-stage coarse screening process, three new screens – type ModuScreen F and TC – with the latest slotted screen baskets and an AhlCleaner RB will be installed to ensure efficient removal of coarse contaminants at minimum fiber loss.

An ANDRITZ SpeedWasher will separate inorganic material, such as filler and coating pigments, from the fiber suspension to enable low ash content at the end of the line. An ANDRITZ Pulp Screw Press further dewaters pulp that is suitable for subsequent dispersing.

In order to meet the high quality requirements of certain tissue products, Metsä Tissue opted for installation of an ANDRITZ SelectaFlot flotation unit to improve brightness and remove ink particles at low fiber loss and energy consumption.

Basic engineering, dismantling of the existing equipment, erection, commissioning, start-up, and training will likewise be supplied by ANDRITZ to minimize the shutdown period.

Metsä Tissue is part of the Metsä Group, one of the largest forest industry groups in the world. The Mänttä mill has approximately 400 employees and produces toilet tissue, household towels, paper tissues, industrial tissue rolls, and greaseproof paper for baking and cooking. Mänttä was the first mill in Finland to use recycled fibre in tissue paper.
