Dry-creped, textured, and structured

The world’s most modern pilot plant for tissue production!

Dry-creped tissue

Dry-creped tissue, so-called conventional tissue, is produced on CrescentFormers with either a suction pressure roll or a shoe press configuration.

Textured tissue

Bringing together both: energy efficiency and higher sheet quality – textured tissue.

Structured tissue

The pilot plant features different TAD configurations for trials that essentially vary with regard to energy consumption.
