Volga, one of the leading newsprint producers in Russia with supplies to more than 70 countries worldwide, is planning to export 180,000 tonnes under existing contracts in 2016.

Volga announces that it has been consistently introducing new technologies to maintain its competitive position in the market. The first step here was the conversion to a new furnish at PM8. Starting from April 2015, PM8 newsprint is manufactured from 100% TMP. The changeover to 100% TMP furnish has brought about a leap in newsprint quality which was immediately felt by the customers. Volga’s newsprint is now ranked on par with that of leading European producers, such as Holmen and UPM, according to the company.
