September 05, 2013 - 21:24

ALMATY, Kazakhstan, Aug. 29, 2013 (Press Release) -On Monday, August 26th, «Kagazy Recycling» LLP experts announced the start of commercial production of mottled bleached board brand BT-1, which serves as a raw material for the production of corrugated products. Previously imported from Russia mottled bleached board will now be produced in Kazakhstan and will therefore become more accessible to the domestic consumers.

Over a period of three months a group of plant-operating engineers under the supervision of the head of paper and corrugated cardboard production Talgat Azhibekov examined raw materials composition, looked into the characteristics of production technologies, studied the procedures of standardization and certification of bleached board and did other preparatory work.

Completed in two days the results of mottled bleached board production testing proved the possibility of manufacturing bleached board in Kazakhstan. It is important to note that Kagazy Recycling bleached board meets all international requirements and standards.

Commenting on the recent developments, Kazakhstan Kagazy JSC and Kagazy Recycling LLP CEO Tomas Mateos Werner said: "Successful start of bleached board production at our facilities demonstrates the Company's leadership in the paper industry of Kazakhstan".

Initially the Company plans to produce 300 tonnes of bleached board monthly, expanding its production to 500 tonnes monthly. We take this opportunity to congratulate all those related to paper production in Kazakhstan on this great success!

Kagazy Recycling - a subsidiary Company of Kazakhstan Kagazy JSC - produces paper and packaging out of recycled waste paper. Kagazy Recycling holds more than 50 percent of the market in Kazakhstan, being the largest paper and packaging producer in Central Asia.
