Separation and recycling process

The combination of advanced technologies and features in the AHP recycling line ensures both efficiency and sustainability. The newly developed line separates SAP, fluff pulp, and other components of an AHP and can recycle SAP and fluff pulp in a closed loop to produce new AHP.
