MM Kotkamills is investing about €30m in two cross cutters with automated core and waste handling.
The project will start immediately in terms of engineering and procurement, MM Kotkamills announced. The first cutter is scheduled to be operational in late 2023 and the second about six months later. The investment will create employment in several areas during construction and, once completed, MM Kotkamills will create several new jobs in board production.
”The core mission of our mill is to promote the circular economy by using production side streams and making efficient use of fibres as our raw material. With the investment, we will also be able to easily recycle the cartonboard broke back into the manufacturing process,” notes Päivi Suutari.
