Fiber procurement

Through the use and processing of waste paper and to some extent pulp, the paper and board mill is part of a circle that sustainably protects the resources of our environment. In total, more than 875,000 tonnes of waste paper in more than 20 different qualities are used for production annually in Varel.

For the supply of fibre raw materials, we work with various disposal companies that deliver the collected material to Papier- u. Kartonfabrik Varel for further processing. We are always interested in meeting new suppliers. Please get in touch with us:

In accordance with list EN643 of the European standard varieties and the Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI), we primarily use the following paper grades:
