Water is precious
Every liter saved is a gain
In terms of water shortage, the requirements and water rights are becoming more stringent for paper mill operators at many locations. Especially in regions with water scarcity, closed water cycles are becoming increasingly important. We develop and deliver solutions that drastically reduce water consumption in paper production, primarily through the development of closed water loops.
Water savings of up to 60% already achieved
Zero liters of process effluent with immediate effect with AquaLine Zero
Most efficient closed water circuit with the AquaLine concept with minimized fresh and effluent water consumption
AquaLine Zero reduces fresh water consumption to only about 1.5 liters per kilogram of paper produced
Disruptive technologies for a completely new papermaking process with 90% water savings by 2030
