Minerals Technologies Signs Agreement with Century Pulp & Paper to Install and Operate a ...  (Company news)

...45,000 Metric Ton Per Year Satellite PCC Plant in India

Minerals Technologies Inc. (NYSE: MTX) (“MTI” or “the Company”) announced that it has signed an agreement with Century Pulp & Paper, Division of Century Textiles and Industries Limited, to install a 45,000 metric ton per year satellite precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) plant (photo) at its paper mill in Lalkuan, District Nainital, India. The facility is scheduled to begin operation in the second quarter of 2020.

“We are very pleased that Century Pulp & Paper has selected Minerals Technologies to install and operate a satellite PCC plant that will provide our technology for their paper machine,” said Douglas T. Dietrich, Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to a long and mutually rewarding relationship with this excellent paper company.”

D.J. Monagle III, Group President, Specialty Minerals and Refractories, commented further, “Century Pulp & Paper is an innovative paper company, and we are thrilled that they have confirmed the value of our PCC technology in their fine paper grades. Our PCC will be used as a paper filler to improve brightness, opacity, bulk and to reduce the cost to the papermaker of higher-cost fiber. This represents our sixth facility in India and continues our geographic growth in Asia.”

PCC is a specialty pigment for filling and coating high-quality paper. By substituting Minerals Technologies' PCC for more expensive wood fiber, customers are able to produce brighter, higher quality paper at lower cost. In 1986, Minerals Technologies originated the satellite concept for making and delivering PCC on site at paper mills and the concept was a major factor in revolutionizing papermaking in North America. Today, MTI has nearly 60 satellite plants in operation or under construction around the world and continues to lead the industry with consistent quality and technical innovation.

The order is Valmet's second tissue machine delivery to CPP's Lalkua mill. Cooperation between the companies started in 2008 when CPP's first Valmet tissue machine was installed.

"We are excited to be the first company in India to install a tissue line equipped with an Advantage ViscoNip press. The combination of the state-of-the-art pressing technology and Advantage ReDry will provide significant energy savings, uniform moisture profile and nip load flexibility up to 150 kN/m," says J.P. Narain, CEO, Century Pulp and Paper. "The new production line will add over 36,000 tonnes of high-quality facial tissue, toilet tissue, kitchen towel and napkin grades to the company's current annual production capacity."

The tissue paper market in India is growing rapidly in respect of both capacity and quality, and with the new Valmet tissue machine, CPP will strengthen its market position.

"Century Pulp and Paper is moving the region's tissue business forward, which requires the highest performance and world-leading technologies. We are proud that CPP once again selected Valmet's Advantage tissue technology, and we look forward to continuously developing our cooperation and contributing to the company's strong expansion," says Tomas Karlsson, Sales Director, Valmet.

Information about the delivery
The new tissue Advantage DCT 100HS tissue machine, TM 7, will have a width of 2.85 m and a design speed of 2,000 m/min. The machine will be equipped with an OptiFlo headbox and a 16-foot Yankee cylinder. It will also feature the Advantage tissue technologies AirCap and Hot Air system, as well as a SoftReel A reel. It also features the new ReDry technology, a novel way to recover energy from hood exhaust air to heat the web before drying. In combination with the ViscoNip press, it has proven to provide significant energy savings and quality improvements. The raw material is virgin fiber, and the production line is optimized to save energy and enhance the quality of the final product.
