27 Sep 2021 − 

Russia's Volga Pulp and Paper Mill will convert its PM 6, which was originally designed for newsprint, to the production of packaging paper.

Russia’s Volga Pulp and Paper Mill will further increase its packaging paper capacity. Within the framework of the company's development programme until 2023, more than RUB5bn will be invested in the first phase.

In order to expand the production of packaging paper, the mill’s PM 6, which was originally designed for newsprint paper, is to be rebuilt, the company reports. After the conversion, the paper machine will have an annual production capacity of 140,000 tpy and a design speed of up to 720 m/min, producing lightweight fluting and testliner in the range of 65 to 120 gsm.

The machine will use both TMP and OCC as raw materials. To this end, Volga will also install an OCC line with a capacity of 400 tpd, which will use recovered paper from local sources.
