Andritz will modernize the cooking and washing processes at Mondi's Frantschach pulp mill in Austria.

Jan. 27, 2015 - Andritz said that it has received an order from the Mondi Group to upgrade the continuous cooking plant at the Frantschach mill in St. Gertraud, Austria.

Start-up is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2015.

Andritz will convert the digester to its Downflow Lo-Solids cooking technology and add a TurboFeed chip pumping system to improve the feed to the digester as well as a vapor reboiler to further reduce odorous emissions.
