Water

The water for the production process is drawn from deep wells on the mill premises. Virtually continuous water recycling within our systems reduces water use. Part of the process water evaporates as the paper web dries. We recover and reutilise as much as possible of the thermal energy contained in the exhaust air. The remainder is discharged into the air as water vapour. Cooling water is taken from the Proviant, Schaeffler and Stadtbach canals.

The process water is recycled several times before it is discharged as effluent to the municipal treatment for purification

 

 

Fibres – Reducing fibre losses in recovered paper processing

Several measures have significantly increased the yield of recovered paper processing, corresponding to a reduction of fibre residues by approx. 2500 t per year. The most significant measures in this respect consisted in increasing and more precisely controlling the ash target values in the recovered paper. This resulted at the same time in a reduction of the amount of virgin filler and fibres used on the paper machine, as well as lower specific energy requirements in recovered paper processing and in the overall paper production process.
