Heinzel to convert PM 10 at Laakirchen mill to recycled containerboard, increase SC paper capacity on PM 11

Wednesday, Nov 04, 2015

Austria's Heinzel group is set to convert its 260,000 tonne/yr uncoated mechanical paper machine PM 10 to production of recycled containerboard. The rebuilt unit with a trim width of 7.24 m is scheduled to start up at the end of 2017. It will be able to make around 450,000 tonnes/yr of testliner and recycled fluting in a basis weight from 70 g/m2, the firm's spokesperson told RISI.

The supercalendered (SC) paper machine PM 10 has been inactive since the end of September due to a fire, but is expected to restart SC paper production in December. Heinzel plans to continue running PM 10 as an SC paper machine until its conversion in 2017.
