MMK FollaCell AS celebrates second anniversary

11.08.2015 - Mechanical Pulp, Company / Mills

The Norwegian pulp mill, MMK FollaCell AS has been part of MM Karton for the last two years. The aim of the acquisition was to ensure the provision of consistent high-quality raw materials to our cartonboard mills for the long term – a decision which has turned out to be successful and sustainable.

Ideal infrastructure due to geographical location
The location of Follafoss on the Trondheim fjord offers ideal infrastructure: supplies and deliveries can arrive and depart reliably by ship thanks to its own port, which is free of ice. The wood processed mainly comes from spruce trees, firs and pines. This region is of advantage not just because the raw materials grow in the vicinity. The energy balance is also especially favourable due to the numerous hydroelectric power stations.  

Very good utilisation 
With an annual capacity of currently 140,000 t, high-quality wood pulp such as BCTMP and CTMP (Bleached and Unbleached Chemo Thermo Mechanical Pulp) is produced which stands out on account of its excellent absorption capability and high bulk. The wood pulp is used both for MMK‘s virgin fibre and its recycled cartonboard qualities, and it is also sold on the free market.

The pulp is produced on the basis of current insights from research and development, both in terms of the quality of the raw material and with regard to its sustainability. Like MM Karton‘s cartonboard qualities, the pulp products from MMK FollaCell are available with FSC® or PEFC certification.
