BIGGER, BETTER, BOLDER: BillerudKorsnäs Gruvön Surges Forward With Sustainable Paperboard, Paper360º March/April 2020
How should we measure leadership in the global packaging industry: Market share? Capital investment? Product innovations? Cutting-edge manufacturing? An emphasis on sustainability and safety?
For the record, BillerudKorsnäs has invested more than EUR537 million (more than US$590 million) to launch KM7 in Gruvön, Sweden, which hits all of the above.
The company expects KM7 to produce 550,000 million metric tons of paperboard per year. The machine has a length of 350 meters and weighs 17,000 metric tons; it produces liquid packaging board, cartonboard, food service board, and liner. The board machine’s anticipated annual capacity—equal to about 100 million milk cartons per day—will make it one of the largest of its kind in the world.
