The recollection of recycled fibers from printing presses and the selective collection of paper and cardboard from municipal services and other recycling agents are managed in this section of the plant.


We then make an exhaustive selection of the material received, depending on its quality, with the aim of achieving a more efficient final product. The white cutout is mainly used in the printable outer layer of our TRIPLEX carton, while the other fibers are used on the reverse and middle layers.


Once selected, the pulp is prepared to serve as the basis for the preparation of the cardboard. We have 6 lines of pulp preparation, with the possibility of using virgin and recycled fibres

The plant's main warehouse houses the largest WLC board machine in the Iberian Peninsula, with an annual output of 170,000 tonnes. It is 152 m long with a net width of 3.92 m for 240 g and 4.01 m for 475 g.



The entire manufacturing process follows rigorous quality control, which begins with the selection of the raw material and covers all the phases of production. Scanners accurately control the grammage, thickness and moisture of the product.


The viscosity, solids, temperature and pH are controlled in the coating section. The objective is to obtain an optimal appearance and coating of the printable surface of the board, to offer excellent printing results.


In addition, the final product is subjected to various quality tests, such as the print test or physical-mechanical tests.

Our electric cogeneration plant is one of the examples of our commitment to sustainability and the environment. It has a maximum capacity of 46 Mw which, in addition to supplying itself with sufficient energy and being connected to the grid, also uses the steam generated for the treatment and drying of the board, achieving high energy efficiency.
