PKV: 20 million tons of paper and cardboard since 1952
PKV has produced a total of 20 million tons of paper and cardboard for packaging over the past 70 years - all from waste paper. The amount produced could cover one third of Germany's surface area. The milestone of 20 million tons now reached reflects the success story of corrugated base papers and board from Varel just as much as the demand for sustainable and recyclable packaging materials, which has grown significantly over the past decades. And last but not least, the development of the production volume traces the dynamic development at the Varel site: By 1990, “only” 15 percent of the 20 million tons now produced had been produced, and by 2010, just over half.
