Company Information

Graz - July 6, 2021. International technology group ANDRITZ is supplying major
energy-efficient and environmentally friendly pulp production technologies and
key process equipment for Bracell's project "STAR" in the city of Lençóis
Paulista, São Paulo state, Brazil. The mill complies with highest environmental
standards and features two flexible, environmentally friendly hardwood
fiberlines for a capacity of 2.6 to 2.8 million tons/year of bleached kraft pulp
or 1.5 million tons/year of dissolving pulp, which is used as raw material for
the production of viscose. ANDRITZ was awarded this contract in July 2019, and
start-up is scheduled for August 2021.

ANDRITZ is providing sustainable technologies and solutions for four of the six
most important process islands in the pulp mill:


* An ANDRITZ HERB Recovery Boiler for maximum power generation. The state-of-
  the-art boiler will be the largest in the world and not only make the mill
  self-sufficient in energy supply but will additionally produce around 180
  megawatts of electricity that will be fed to the Brazilian grid to supply
  roughly three million people with green energy.

* Two environmentally friendly hardwood Fiberlines, for capacities of 2.6 to 2.8
  million t/y of kraft pulp or 1.5 million t/y of dissolving pulp, that process
  certified eucalyptus trees and ensure lowest effluent emissions, a LoSolids
  continuous cooking system with Pre-Hydrolysis Vessel (PHV), screen room and
  bleach plant, as well as ANDRITZ's DD-Washer technology, ensuring low
  operating costs, low emissions, extremely high washing efficiency, and
  excellent fiber quality. The cooking plant for the fiberline is state of the
  art in the continuous cooking process for production of dissolving pulp.

* A complete Wood Processing Plant using ANDRITZ's proven technologies,
  including ANDRITZ's unique, horizontally fed HHQ-Chipper (EXL model), ensuring
  high capacity and optimum chip quality. Woodyard operation is enhanced with
  state-of-the-art Metris - ANDRITZ digital solutions, featuring artificial
  intelligence and digital sensors. The plant includes ChipperEKG, stone
  detection, the ScanChip chip analyzer, and a FlowScanner, which measures the
  density and moisture content of the chips to optimize the fiberline process
  and minimize wood consumption.

* Two innovative EvoDry Pulp Drying Systems for the most energy-efficient pulp
  drying based on the high-capacity Twin Wire Former technology. The ANDRITZ
  cutter-layboy provides the pulp bales to be further processed in the high-
  capacity baling lines, where the final pulp bale units are produced.

* ANDRITZ is also supplying a Non-Condensable Gas (NCG) treatment system that
  enables safe and environmentally friendly treatment of all types of diluted or
  concentrated malodorous gases, thus meeting the strictest environmental and
  social requirements. The gases are collected and eliminated by waste gas
  incinerator with quenching as well as flue gas scrubbers. The NCG incineration
  system is based on the "A-Recovery+" concept developed by ANDRITZ, focusing on
  the use of side streams in the recovery cycle to increase efficiency and make
  pulp mills more sustainable, thus helping customers to minimize emissions and
  waste.
