The boldness of its creators surprised the industry: it was the world’s biggest single line pulp factory.

The selection and purchase of cutting edge equipment were part of Eldorado’s tight construction schedule. As early as November 2010, for example, Andritz Brasil Ltda. received an order for the supply of areas such as the lumber yard, the complete fiber line, the drying/baling plant and the white liquor plant—adding up to 70 percent of the factory’s equipment. The lumber yard comprises three wood chipping lines, conveyors, wood chip storage and retrieval system, four screens, along with a biomass storage and distribution system. The fiber line includes a Lo-Solids digester plus washing, cleaning and bleaching units based on Andritz’s DD-Washer technology. According to the vendor, the cutting edge fiber line technology provides the highest performance and efficiency levels, with minimum consumption of chemicals.
