Maximum raw material utilization, minimal waste
With this technology, the mill can fully utilize all the cellulose-containing material that is not typically utilized for pulp production, such as fines from the wood yard and screen room rejects. This results in higher total mill production – an increase of up to 2.5% – and significantly reduces waste when the cooking system is installed alongside a kraft pulp digester.
Simple and economical concept
The low initial investment costs, easy operation and reduced maintenance make the A-ConApex technology an evolutionary step over the M&D digester, batch digesters or screw-type digesters. This makes using cellulose-containing fibrous materials – such as sawdust, straw, bagasse, agricultural waste, and other non-wood raw materials – for pulp production a very cost-effective proposition for stand-alone installations.
