GROWING SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS
We continuously challenge the status quo in the deep belief that we can make our industry sustainable.
Archroma helps to make paper production more efficient by using less resources and reducing discharge while delivering vibrant paper stocks.
With our innovative solutions, papermakers can increase the use of recycled fibers in their paper, while improving printability and surface finish.
CARTASPERS® – MAKING RECYCLED PAPER PRODUCTION EASIER
The increase in use of recycled fibers in papermaking presents a number of technical challenges to the mills – Cartaspers® effectively solves the problem.
Cartaspers® products are biodegradable and easily mix with other papermaking additives. They allow the efficient processing of recycled paper by preventing the clogging-up of machines from resin and adhesive particles present in waste paper and caused for example by address labels or envelope edges.
! The USEPA acknowledged that Cartaspers® PSM “provides reduced worker exposure to volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions and improved paper machine operational efficiency during the use of post-consumer waste in the production of paper products.”

LEUCOPHOR® ACK – NEW HIGH PERFORMANCE OPTICAL BRIGHTENING AGENT
Our Leucophor® ACK optical brightener is the new benchmark for sustainability in the sector.
To date it is the most highly concentrated and urea free solution, reducing usage and transportation. It delivers the combined benefits of reduced costs and carbon emissions.
CARTASOL® K – SUPPORTING CLOSED LOOP PAPERMAKING
The Cartasol® K range of cationic dyes act incredibly fast and efficiently, whilst producing clear backwaters at the end of the papermaking process.
This allows the water to be easily reused and supports closed loop production processes, minimizing the need for fresh water.
