Technical details about CompactCooking G2

The cooking plant is the first stage in a chemical pulping line where lignin
is chemically separated from the fiber. CompactCooking G2 is Valmet's
2-vessel continuous cooking system mainly consisting of an impregnation
system and a digester for cooking of chips. It is characterized by its
simple, yet sophisticated design, a flexible system that is easy to operate.
Valmet's ImpBin impregnation technology with its unique features enables
