Laakirchen Papier Restarts PM10 after Conversion to Recycled Containerboard

Laakirchen Papier AG said that the grade conversion project involving paper machine 10 at its mill in Laakirchen, Austria, is complete and PM10 is back in operation.

The 10-week project converted PM10’s production from SC paper to light-weight containerboard based on recycled fiber.

According to the company, the machine project was finished on schedule.

“The PM10 has produced the first paper reels. In the coming days, we are concentrating together with the machine suppliers on stable paper quality and productivity,” said Mark Lunabba, CEO of Laakirchen Papier AG.

The Laakirchen Papier mill operates two paper machines. PM10 has the capacity to produce 450,000 tons per year of light-weight containerboard, while PM11 has the capacity to produce 350,000 tons per year of supercalendered uncoated papers (SC papers) for heatset weboffset and rotogravure printing.
