GEA supports south African customer Mpact with a black liquor concentration and drying plant
Mpact, South Africa's leading company in the production and recycling of paper and plastic packaging, is taking delivery of a new black liquor concentration and drying plant from GEA, a machinery and equipment manufacturer and solution provider. Black liquor is an energy- and lignin-rich by-product of cellulose production using the sulfite process in the paper industry. It is produced when the lignin is separated from the pulp, which then forms the paper fibers. The technology solution for a modernization project at the Mpact paper mill based in Mkhondo, Mpumalanga – a province of South Africa consists of a GEA decanter centrifuge, a GEA Mechanical Vapor Recompression (MVR) evaporator and a GEA spray dryer.
