Description and specialisation

Burgo Ardennes is an integrated plant producing hardwood kraft pulp and woodfree coated paper (R4 Chorus). This paper is available in a range of substances between 90 and 350 gsm.

An end-product warehouse with a capacity of 15,000 tons allows for the rapid delivery of standard sizes and gives Burgo Ardennes greater flexibility towards customer service and rapid response times.

Constant investments have made it possible for the plant to produce most of its own energy requirements through the use of modern cogeneration power plants that run on wood derived sub products such as bark and lignin used in the production of paper. Recent investments involving the installation of a BWE boiler have also further increased energy production.

The paper mill attained PEFC and FSC forest certifications.

The Burgo Ardennes plant has also attained OHSAS 18001 certification.
