Wim Schauvliege, Project Engineer of Stora Enso’s paper division, talks with the Bollegraaf team about Stora Enso’s experience with Bollegraaf and takes us into Stora Enso’s reasons for choosing Bollegraaf as their solution supplier.

“In Ghent we produce PfR (paper for recycling) as a raw material for our low carbon circular products. We receive unsorted paper stream (mainly based on used newsprint and magazine paper) that is contaminated by cardboard.”

“There are multiple challenges we face. One of the challenges is that cardboard is more and more resembling paper in its properties. […] The rise in e-commerce and delivery at home has led to a great increase in cardboard packaging, while at the same time we see the effects of digitalization through a decrease in traditional physical media, such as magazines, newspapers and letters.”

“We really enjoyed the cooperation with the Bollegraaf engineering and project management team. They were able to think along with us and provide us with the best technologies for our specific requirements. For us Bollegraaf provided the best solution.”
