Andritz has received an order from Renewcell to supply textile recycling equipment to its recycling plant in Sundsvall/Sweden. The ADuro shredders of the international technology group Andritz AG, Graz/Austria, are the core elements of the new recycling system. They will shred used textiles in only one shredding step. With unique capabilities, the ADuro shredders cut the incoming material uniformly and cleanly while enabling a very high throughput. In the subsequent separation stages, contaminants like buttons and zippers will be removed from the shredded textiles. Renewcell, Stockholm/Sweden, uses this pre-treated material to produce a pure, natural dissolving pulp made from 100% recycled textiles.
With the state-of-the-art equipment from Andritz, up to 60,000 tons/year of used textiles can be handled in the new recycling plant. Start-up of the plant is scheduled for the first half of 2022.
