Two Top Awards for ANDRITZ at ABTCP

The awards ceremony of the Associação Brasileira Técnica de Celulose e Papel (ABTCP) is recognized in the South American pulp and paper industry as one of the most important events of the year. The awards have three phases: assignment – which includes case studies, public voting to classify the three finalists, and analysis of the case studies by a Technical Committee. This year, ANDRITZ entered the competition with Fibria´s Três Lagoas second pulp production line project, Horizonte 2 (see complete story in SPECTRUM issue 37).
