The new system will process 100% eucalyptus to produce high-quality MDF products. It will use proven ANDRITZ technologies – a 20in plug screw feeder and an S 1056M high-consistency refiner – to achieve superior fibre quality at a very low electrical and thermal energy consumption.

“Our aim is to make the best use of the scarce resources available to us by using the most efficient manufacturing practices,” said Shobhan Mittal, managing director and CEO, Greenpanel Industries. “The technological solution proposed by ANDRITZ is in line with our environmentally friendly production approach.”

Greenpanel Industries Ltd is the main manufacturer of wood panels in India and the largest producer of MDF in Asia. The company specialises in the production of MDF, plywood, decorative veneers, flooring, and doors made of 100% renewable wood.
