Value to our customers: Transparency and peace of mind

Micro-organisms are always present in the paper, board, and tissue manufacturing process and if not managed properly, they will always cause problems. Uncontrolled microbes impact machine runnability, cause end-product defects, and decrease profitability. In hygienic grades production, an outbreak of bacterial spores leads immediately to the loss of thousands of tons of paper or board.

Real-time visibility to the microbiological activity in your process helps you overcome the delays of traditional performance control and cultivation methods. You can react quickly to changing process conditions and steer clear of runnability issues and out-of-spec production. When the microbiological treatment program is adjusted based on up-to-date data, you can optimize the use of biocides in your process, which also supports your sustainability.
