New Member of INGEDE:
Dalum Papir A/S in Denmark
With two machines, the mill founded in Odense in 1874 produces 120,000 tons mostly from recycled pulp
Dalum Papir A/S in Odense, Denmark, has become member of the International Research Association Deinking Technology (INGEDE). Dalum Papir produces papers for office and printing purposes almost entirely from recovered paper.
The Dalum Paper Mill was built next to the Odense river in 1874. One year later, the competing Maglemølle Mill was purchased. Maglemølle is located at the Susa River in Naestved and was converted to a deinking operation in 1990.
The annual consumption of recovered paper at Maglemølle is 115,000 tons, resulting in is some 75,000 tons of deinked pulp. The deinked pulp is transported by daily rail link to Dalum where it is used in the production of fine paper under the Cyclus and RePrint brands.
Two paper machines are in operation at Dalum. The PM 6 produces about 40,000 tons of uncoated paper for office and printing uses and the PM 7 produces some 80,000 tons of mainly coated printing paper. The sheeting capacity is some 80,000 tons with the remaining production sold as reels.
The mill was owned by Stora from 1990 and taken over by a group of Danish investors in February 1999. Since then a number of efficiency measures have been implemented and the company has established its own European sales organisation. The quality of the deinked pulp has recently been further increased by an additional screening equipment.
INGEDE is an association of leading European paper manufacturers founded in 1989. INGEDE aims at promoting utilisation of recovered graphic paper (newsprint and magazines) and improving the conditions for an extended use of recovered paper for the production of graphic and hygiene papers.
