Volga Celebrates 250,000 Tonnes Premium Quality Newsprint in First Year

Thursday, Apr 21, 2016

The milestone in production was recorded on April 17, 2016 as the 250,000th tonne of newsprint produced with the new technology was manufactured at high-speed PM8.

Thus, since the new manufacturing process involving 100% TMP furnish was introduced in April last year, the Mill has produced a quarter of a million tonnes of premium quality newsprint, which is 104% to the planned target (from April 2015 to April 2016).

Commenting on the event, Volga’s General Director Dmitry Donchenko says: “This figure is important not only to Volga’s papermakers, who have contributed their efforts and great professionalism to the achievement, but also to our customers and partners both in Russia and abroad. To get a better idea of how much newsprint it is, imagine, if you will, a line of 13,000 trucks, all filled with newsprint! Our future growth is dependent on further development of the TMP newsprint manufacture and we shall continue taking action to this end.”

Today, Volga’s paper is shipped to 76 countries worldwide. The Mill’s partners include large and reputable publishing and printing houses in Europe, Asia, Africa, Central and South America.
