- ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION
We strive for an eco-friendly value chain by using our resources consciously and aim to avoid environmental impacts. By permantely optimizing our production process, we continously reduce our consumption of raw materials, water and energy.
As part of Heinzel Group we actively contribute to creating a circular economy in the paper industry by reprocessing waste paper as valuable raw material for new publication and packaging paper.

Plants for environmental protection
Plants for paper recycling
About 750,000 tons of waste paper are processed on site using a special technology each year.
Wastepaper as raw material for sc paper production is processed in the deinkingplant. Wastepaper as raw material for containerboard production is processed in the RCF plant.
- Save valuable renewable raw materials such as wood
- Lower energy consumption and use of chemicals by using secondary fibers (waste paper)
- When wastewater is cleaned, high-quality biogas is created for heat generation. This reduces gas consumption and CO2 emissions.
Wastewater treatment plant
We guarantee the excellent water quality of the river "Traun" by our extensive wastewater treatment. Additionally, we secure an ecological habitat for fish and small animals.
Gasturbine co-generation plant
The gasturbine co-generation plant enables 2/3 of the energy supply and a complete heat supply of the plant.
Hydroelectric power station Danzermühl
The green energy produced in the Danzermühl hydropower plant - around 45 GWh per year - covers part of the energy demand.
Residues are recycled in a fluidized bed boiler. We work 99% waste free.
Your opinion is important to us!
An important prerequisite for our communication policy is the open dialogue with our stakeholders and all persons interested in our company and products. For this reason, we are looking for a discussion with employees, customers, business partners, authorities, environmental associations, citizens from our municipality and the surrounding area as well as all interested readers of these pages.
