Nordic Paper at Bäckhammar will shortly launch and new evaporation plant. In at press release the company describes this as a journey towards being one of the world's best Kraft paper manufacturers.
The plant will be inaugurated on Wednesday 22 June by the Mayor of Kristinehamn, Bjarne Olsson (S).
”When more and more can consumers react negatively towards plastic products and demand alternatives with smaller environmental footprints we also see increased demand for our products” says Jan Runo, leader of the Nordic Paper concern.
This gives Nordic paper great possibilities and is why we are now investing in our Kraft paper mill at Bäckhammar. The evaporation plant is the first step in the pulp mill´s chemical and energy recycling concept. It contributes to making the mill self sufficient where energy is concerned. The plant dries lute from the pulp boiler in five different stages. After that it can be used as fuel in the process. According to Lars Rosén, Produktion Director Kraft Paper, the medium term aim is to increase the yearly capacity of pulp from the current 195 000 tonnes to 230 000 tonnes and of paper from 120 000 tonnes to 160 000 tonnes. The next step will be to evaluate the capacity of the soda boiler before we can increase paper production capacity.
