Mondi proceeds with containerboard investment project in Slovakia

15 Oct 2018 − 

Total investment cost upwardly revised by €30m to €340m due to refined technical concept of the machine and higher construction costs, according to Mondi.

Mondi group is investing a total of €340m to add containerboard production capacity to the pulp and fine and kraft paper mill in Ruzomberok, Slovakia. The company has recently obtained the necessary permitting for the project, Mondi explained. The company was now proceeding with the project and the new 300,000 tpy kraft top-white machine is projected to start-up towards the end of 2020, Mondi announced.

Mondi plans to produce the pulp feedstock for the white virgin fibre top layer at the site in Ruzomberok. The related pulp mill upgrade that will debottleneck bleached hardwood pulp production by 100,000 tpy is reportedly "progressing according to plan with start-up expected in late 2019."
