Vina Kraft Paper Co., Ltd. - Fact Sheet

Vina Kraft Paper Co., Ltd., the biggest packaging paper manufacturer in Vietnam, is a joint venture between Siam Kraft Industry Co., Ltd., an affiliate of SCG Packaging in Thailand and Rengo Company Limited in Japan with the total investment cost of 330 million USD for the 380,000 sq.m. area to support the increasing demand of packaging paper in Vietnam.

 

To maximize operational efficiency, we have expanded our production line in accordance with the global standards of technology, the Paper Machine: PM No.2 (Hybrid Technology for Future Packaging) for manufacturing the corrugating medium paper achieving the total production capacity of 500,000 tons per year. The Paper Machine No.2 has its outstanding value-added features as the following

-  Low Grammage Design which can give more value to customers by its ability to produce light weight paper with less fibers while maintaining desirable or higher quality and durability for customers. 

-  Hybrid former with Dilution profile: enables the excellent paper formation and fiber bonding by arranging the fiber orientation in order to obtain a smooth appearance and desired strength.

-  Metering Sizer: can accurately control the consistency of sizing materials on the paper surface in order to strengthen the smooth surface.

Green Process: Water and energy usage in the production process.

Apart from the technology advancement, the PM No.2 also uses various environmentally-friendly Green Technologies that can minimize the use of water and energy consumptions as the following

•  Disc filter: It is designed for recovering fiber mingled in the white water (fiber-rich back water) from the papermaking process. With its ability to separate the liquid and solid, it can recycle water efficiently resulted in decreasing the water consumption in the paper-making process.

• Recycle water plant: With the efficient environmentally-friendly technology of effluent treatment system in Vina Kraft, the obtained treated water is at top quality standard as required by all relevant environmental regulations of Vietnam.  Thus, it can be reused in process for minimizing the use of water consumption.

•  High Efficiency Screening System: It is the Japanese latest technology of fiber screening that can be operated in the papermaking process with less water and power consumptions.

•  Shoe Press:  it is a paper-making technology that improves dewatering of the paper sheet at the wet pressing section. With its high pressure, the shoe press can strengthen the paper while reducing steam consumption in drying process at the dyer section.
