Pulping line for carton recycling

We’re collaborating with paper manufacturer Bio Pappel to increase the carton recycling rate in Mexico to 40% over the next five years. Starting with installing a pulping line dedicated exclusively to carton recycling, we are now working to expand input of cartons. We expect to reach a capacity of 24,000 tonnes per year. The material obtained is used mainly to produce linerboard for corrugated boxes. Next stepsinclude improving the polyAl (polymer and aluminium from cartons) handling process in the line to achieve a higher quality recycled polyAl.
