SMARTECH, a leading provider of cutting-edge technology solutions for the global wood-based panel industry, proudly announces the successful commissioning of the SMARTWAX ECO System at Greenply Industries' brand-new MDF mill in Gujarat, India. This exciting milestone marks a significant leap forward in eco-friendly and efficient manufacturing processes.
Greenply Industries' greenfield mill achieved an incredible feat by producing its first board in a mere 15 months.
The SMARTWAX ECO System generates an innovative in-line wax suspension that delivers exceptional performance and coverage to fibers. One of the key advantages of the SMARTWAX ECO System is its precision in wax distribution, ensuring that only the necessary amount is used to meet stringent quality specifications. By doing so, Greenply significantly reduces the use of wax and saves considerable costs while impacting on the environment with the elimination of excess wax usage. This remarkable achievement aligns perfectly with Greenply's commitment to sustainability and responsible resource management.
Mr. Hansjorg Prettner, VP Europe and Asia praised the outstanding collaboration with EVP Mr. Roman Poddar and his team, which led to the successful design, delivery, and satisfaction of Greenply with this exceptional project. Thanks to the SMARTWAX ECO System, Greenply has seen a remarkable 30% reduction in wax expenditure.
