Reduction of water consumption

For the production of paper a certain amount of water is needed. In the past 20 years NorPaper was able to reduce the water abstraction from groundwater by 40% while the productivity increased by 60%. This evolution reflects the high level of engagement to reduce the environmental impact of the company by making targeted and substainable investments (nearly 2 MM. EUR for the total closure of the circuits).

Cogeneration Plan

NorPaper Blendecques is engaged in a cooperation with a natural gas cogeneration plan with a production output of 11MWH. The exhaust gas is used for the production of steam (via a heat recovery generator), which in return dries the paper. This realization has a direct impact on the fight against the greenhouse effect as, despite the energy increase, the company can reuse the engery at the same time.
