Increase use of lower quality fibres

The mill and Borregaard had two main delivery objectives: enhanced technical properties and improved economic figures using a higher quantity lower quality fibres.

Key takeaways:

  • Borresperse® Paper was applied with starch on film-press and the strength properties met the target values of CM115 grade.
  • Starch consumption decreased by 24% and production increased by 9%.
  • The lower quality recycled fibre ratio increased from 30 to 40% providing further economic gains for the mill.
