Raw material from sawmill chips originates from fresh timber harvested from renewable forests. About 200,000 m3 spruce and pine chips are purchased from local sawmills that are all PEFC og FSC wood certified. The chips ensure fibres that have high levels of strength and brightness compared to round timber.
The chips are first washed, which removes sand and other unwanted particles. After preheating, the chips are fed into the refiners by a ribbon feeder screw, where the various grades are produced according to customers’ requirements. Post-treatment may also be specified, f.ex. bleaching. The pulp is first dried in a hot air stream and then packed in 200-kilo bales and 1.2-ton units.
Rygene has made considerable investments in replacing outdated machinery and installing modern equipment in order to maintain pulp quality. We are constantly seeking to improve our production methods, products and working conditions in order to remain at the developmental forefront and thereby satisfy both our customers and governmental regulations.
Rygene’s current capacity is approximately 40,000 tons (varies according to grade – fine to coarse) produced in a three-shift system.
The pulp has a variety of end-uses: coated paper, newsprint, printing paper, various cardboard qualities and special packing materials.
All products are made to customers’ specific requirements, which necessitates our maintaining a high level of cooperation with our buyers.
