Optimal solutions and support for your specific recycled fiber processing needs

Producing high-quality board and paper grades with low-quality raw material like old corrugated containers (OCC) and mixed waste (MW) places high demands on recycled fiber processes. Process optimization begins with the specification of the end product’s desired properties. This guides the selection of the stock preparation concept, which must be robust and flexible while meeting the full range of productivity and environmental demands. With Valmet’s experts, you can optimize the entire recycled fiber line to produce more stable quality pulp while improving efficiency with very high safety standards.

Whether you’re looking for a totally new recycled fiber line or a partial rebuild, Valmet secures the production of a high-quality end product with good strength properties. The customized process design enables the optimizing of final pulp quality, process yield and most importantly, your investment and operating costs.

Full-scale pilot testing facility

The world’s most comprehensive testing, piloting and laboratory services are available at the Valmet Fiber Technology Center in Inkeroinen, Finland. The pilot facility provides a complete testing environment for mechanical pulping, recycled fiber, stock preparation and pulp drying. Valmet’s professional team has run hundreds of customer trials.

At Valmet, we’re continuously developing new solutions and processes to meet your needs through lower energy consumption
