Packaging Solutions

Progroup is investing more than €90 million s in a new corrugated sheetfeeder plant in Rhineland-Palatinate that will be part of a sustainable packaging park. Production of corrugated board is set to begin in 2023. To mark the start of the construction work in fitting style, the company invited guests to attend the ground breaking ceremony.

Representatives of the packaging manufacturer G&G Preißer joined local politicians and the companies involved in the project to mark the start of the construction work in fitting style, for the 28,000 square metre new building is being constructed right next door to Progroup’s long standing customer and partner. In future, the company will be able to supply it with corrugated board just in time via a direct link – thus creating a sustainable packaging park.

The planned production speed is 400 metres per minute with a working width of 3.35 metres. The production line is designed among other things to produce single wall and double wall Next Board corrugated board sheets with B, C, E and F flutes and smaller grammages in all combinations. Next Board corrugated boards are renowned for much lower use of energy and raw materials and in production and transport they reduce the CO2 emissions per tonne of corrugated board by 26% on average.

In the long term, the company is striving to achieve carbon neutral recycling. To do this, the company is investing around €2 million in resource saving production methods at its new site. One of the future plans is to commission an efficient combined cooling, heat and power plant. This will save the use of fossil fuels and at the same time reduce CO2 emissions by utilising energy efficiently.
