ANDRITZ received order to supply Wetlace™ CP line to Lotus Teknik, Turkey





Estimated Cost:




International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Lotus Teknik A.S., Turkey, to supply a neXline wetlace CP (carded pulp) line for the production of biodegradable, plastic-free wet wipes.


The line is scheduled for start-up by the end of 2021.

The neXline wetlace CP line is equipped with state-of-the-art stock preparation equipment, including approach flow and fan pump, opening and blending, TT card, wetlaid forming unit for pulp application, a hydroentanglement system, filtration unit, dewatering, and through-air drying. All components are perfectly designed to produce a first-class biodegradable wipe.

ANDRITZ developed the new neXline wetlace CP line in order to serve the new market trend of sustainable wipes. Lotus Teknik supported the development from a roll goods producer and converter perspective.

The partnership follows the successful installation of an ANDRITZ high-capacity spunlace line some years ago. The Wetlace CP new generation of production technology for biodegradable wipes has resulted from ANDRITZ’s extensive knowledge and considerable history of providing technologies for wood-based industries, spunlace and wetlaid roll goods, and the strong collaboration with Lotus Teknik.     

Lotus Teknik operates ANDRITZ lines (spunlace, and as from end of 2021 also Wetlace CP) producing roll goods for a wide variety of nonwoven end products.
