Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill, one of Russia’s largest pulp and paper producers will begin the production of cardboard from wastepaper. A new machine will be built in Novodvinsk, i.e. A Russian city located in Arkhangelsk Oblast. Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill intends to build the first wastepaper machine (KDM-4). It will run on secondary fiber, which is a novelty of the corporate environmental agenda. Thus, Pulp Mill Holding will create a cyclical bioeconomy of all its Russian productions. The commissioning of the machine is expected for 2024.

According to the company, such decision was taken on the basic environmentally oriented principles of the company’s activities.

The capacity of KDM-4 will be 400,000 tons of products per year. 

The new production will be focused mainly on the domestic market. Following the launch of the fourth machine, the capacity of the Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill for the production of cardboard will be over 1 million tons per year.
