Customer case:

Energy efficient OCC line at Orora Botany Mill

Aug 7, 2015

Orora's new B9 is the largest paper machine operating in Australia. To match with world-class board machine the mill needed a top-performing OCC line that Valmet delivered alongside the board machine. As raw material, B9 uses 100% recycled fiber from domestic containerboard and mixed waste.

The OCC line produces very clean results with few specks and very low stickie counts. Also, energy consumption is as low as was designed.”
