Pulping department – cellulose in the pulper
The Goričane company originates from one of the oldest Slovenian paper mills, established in 1740. The company has been producing paper at its present location since 1788. From 1890 until the end of the 20th century, the company also produced chemical woodpulp; however, it discontinued pulp production; due to its strategic decision to be an environment-friendly paper manufacturer. Today, the company produces mostly high-quality woodfree papers.
Bales of cellulose are transported along the conveyor belt into the pulper. Inside, cellulose is dissolved and prepared for further processing. This is start of the production unit.
