Sept. 9, 2021 - Phoenix Paper said that it has finished a $5 million recommissioning project for the pulp dryer at the company's pulp and paper mill in Wickliffe, Kentucky.
According to Phoenix Paper, the addition of the pulp dryer will allow the mill to more efficiently operate the back end of the mill, as well as add a secondary product of baled pulp.
The project was complex, upgrading former equipment and raising the roof of the building to accommodate the newer standard size of rail cars, Phoenix Paper said. The project was completed on time, on budget, with zero injuries.
Phoenix Paper's first shipment of baled pulp left the mill in four railcars during the first week of September.
The Wickliffe mill produces high-quality, 100% kraft uncoated free sheet printing, writing, and converting paper with an annual production capacity of 300,000 tons. The mill also produces market pulp. To learn more, visit: www.phoenixpaper.com.
