Efficient use of side streams

We strive to utilise all production side streams as efficiently as possible, and our goal is that by 2030 we will make use of all the side streams rather than generating any landfill waste.

Sustainability cases

In 2022 we made remarkable improvement as our waste to landfill decreased over 90% from 2021. Due to good development now also our Kreuzau mill is using 100% of its side streams as it started collaboration with cement industry to utilize ash from energy production. Also our Krapkowice and Zilina mills decreased the amount of waste to landfill by increasing fresh fiber use and increasing utilization of pulper reject from de-inking for heat generation.
