Water plays an important role in the manufacturing process of the paper, since it is largely determining the final structure of the finished paper. As such, the paper industry is very depending on this natural resource.
VPK Packaging Group has always been on the forefront in searching for new ways to reduce excessive water usage. In spite of water being an important ingredient, the paper industry’s total water consumption can be considered as rather limited. Most of the water VPK Packaging Group uses, is sourced from rivers or surface water reservoirs and is recirculated internally.
Residu water goes to a treatment and purification station, is being re-used or released into the natural water system from which it had been extracted in the first place.
