Pulp & Paper Mill Industry Challenges

With the worldwide focus on sustainability, the pulp mill, paper mill, and packaging industry may be seeing increased demand for their products to replace other products including plastic. To help meet the increased demand for renewable and replaceable products, the industry is demanding tough, mill-duty grinding, hogging, shredding, screening, and processing equipment that provides heavy-duty construction and reliable, long term operation

With the increased competition for fiber, successful producers need to be able to handle a wide variety of incoming feedstock - forest residuals, LVL/plywood trim, slabs, bark, log yard debris, trees, stumps, and lily pads to convert into products including biomass feedstock, boiler fuel, compost, landscape material, and pellets/densified fuel. WSM's low maintenance, field-proven hogs, grinders, and screens can help convert wood residuals into valuable wood fiber products.  Configuring the individual components to maximize efficiency for your application or designing a fully integrated system including conveyors and access platforms - you can be confident you're getting the best solution for your fuel and fiber processing needs.
