    Own paper machine and production facility: 100% recycled paper from Model

    We produce corrugated base paper in our own paper production facility. Testliner and kraftliner made from high-quality recycled paper.

    Recycled paper

    Paper from Model consists of 100 percent waste paper. Used paper products are valuable resources for us, which we process sustainably. When manufacturing paper, we attach great importance to quality and care throughout the entire production process. We also rely on short distances within the Model Group. This makes our production efficient with a low carbon footprint.

    High availability

    Even if there is a paper shortage across Europe, the Model Group has sufficient raw materials for the production of paper – thanks to our closed paper cycle. This gives both our customers and our employees security.

    • Paper web width 2.5m
    • Grammage of 90-100 g/m2 and 100-200 g/m2

    Production of 230,000 tons of paper per year.

     

    • Paper machine with 5.2m working width
    • Roll diameter 1.4m, width 2.5-2.8m
    • Paper grammage between 115 and 170 g/m2

    Model paper mill Eilenburg (DE)

    Production of 280,000 tons of paper per year.

     

    • four paper machines, one with 9.2m working width

    Largest paper machine

    Outlook for the Eilenburg site

    The location in Central Germany has been part of the Model Group since August 2021. We are converting our facility to the production of corrugated base paper.

     

    We will have the largest and widest paper machine in the Group in 2024 in Eilenburg. Our customers will benefit from the conversion of the paper mill: Thanks to the large paper machine, Model will soon be able to offer papers with very low grammage (from 70 g/m²).

     

    The Model Group provides training at the Eilenburg site: for example for the professions of paper technologist, electronics technician and mechatronics technician.

    Waste paper as raw material

    Quality assurance

    We pay attention to the highest quality even when the raw material is delivered from outside: Our employees carefully check the delivered waste paper bales. Quality assurance includes:

     

    • Testing for fillers, these are insoluble additives. We accept a maximum of 7 percent foreign matter in the base material.
    • Testing for initial wet strength because this reduces tears within the paper machine. 
    Environmentally friendly

    Recycled paper

    At Model, we always know exactly which raw materials and additional materials were use to manufacture the paper and packaging. We also check the upstream and downstream activities ourselves. This enables us to make the entire manufacturing process and our supply chains transparent for our customers. Another plus: Recycled paper is ideal for the majority of all types of packaging.

    Our paper grades

    Testliner 1, 2 and 3

    Testliner paper is made from recycled fibers. At Model, we produce testliner in quality levels 1, 2 and 3. Our testliner 1 has the highest strength properties. We use the liner (cover paper) for the outer and inner cover of our corrugated board.

    Sustainably produced

    Kraftliner Replacement

    As strong as virgin fiber kraftliner, sustainably made from recycled paper: Our kraftliner replacement based on 100% recycled fibers is a cheap substitute product. We use kraftliner quality paper when very high strength (stability) is required (for spare parts and machine parts packaging, overseas transport and refrigerated packaging).

    Technology and logistics

    Optimal cooperation for our customers

    Around the clock, seven days a week, our employees take care of the complex papermaking processes with passion and know-how. The smooth maintenance of the technical systems is an exciting, challenging task. Our factory logistics move raw materials and finished goods in large quantities every day. We can offer our customers the best possible quality because of the strength of this cooperation.
