Felixton Paper Mill rebuild

REDUCE / RECYCLE

R800m

The upgrade of the Felixton Mill, which will increase the mill’s capacity by 60,000 tonnes to 215,000 tonnes. Notably, the significant investment in the latest paper machine technology and machinery has improved the quality of our paper products; enhanced operational efficiencies and the mill’s overall competitiveness in line with global trends.

The mill will no longer utilise bagasse fibre in its products, moving towards fully recycled fibre usage. Environmental benefits of the upgrade also include significant specific reductions in CO2, and the usage of energy, water, and solid waste.”

Liquid Packaging recycling plant

RECYCLE

R50m

The company also invested R46 million in equipment at its Springs Mill in 2016 which now allows for the processing of used milk and juice cartons – previously a product that couldn’t be recycled. The equipment strips the paper layer away from the plastic and aluminium layer and then uses this high quality paper in the manufacturing of new paper reels. “The plant is expected to recycle 25,000 tonnes of liquid packaging products annually and create more than 500 income generating opportunities for entrepreneurs and traders.”
