FIT FOR THE FUTURE IN GERNSBACH
01.02.2021 - Innovations / Investments
MM Karton has just invested in the board machine, the wastewater treatment plant and the power station to bring the Gernsbach site in Germany further up to date. The aim of these investments is the continuous optimisation of product quality and the latest environmental protection.
Quality and resource efficiency
A new calendar was installed to further improve the surface properties of our recycled board products, which are well established on the market. The water treatment plant has also been completely renovated, enabling the mill to achieve higher production volumes. MMK also invested in increasing the energy efficiency of the power station. As a result, MM Gernsbach now already complies with the new and tighter emission limit values that will come into force from 2025.
The investment took place towards the end of the 3rd quarter, lasted about three weeks and was carried out under the strictest COVID-19 protection measures.
"With these comprehensive investments in quality and the efficient and responsible use of resources, our mill has a strong future. We are thus not only meeting the high demands of today's market but are also positioned in a competitive manner for tomorrow," says Thomas Schmidt, Mill Director of MMK Gernsbach.
The German MMK Gernsbach mill is considered one of the most efficient recycled cartonboard manufacturing sites in Europe and has taken a significant step forward with these optimisations. The satisfaction of our customers is the focus of our actions.
