Debtech worked with Orora (formerly Amcor) from feasibility studies through the entire development of the Botany Paper Mill in Sydney, New South Wales.
Leighton Contractors were awarded the contract for the design and construction of the paper machine building, stock preparation building, product store waste paper yard, mill offices, control room and other ancillary works. Metso supplied the new recycled paper machine and all main process equipment and control systems for the Mill.
The B9 paper machine produces 100% recycled paper which is then converted into corrugated board. The Mill was designed specifically to minimise environmental impacts such as noise, odour, water discharges and provide a reduction of waste to landfill.
Debtech continue to work closely with Orora on further projects at the Botany Mill site.
