AP-Concept GmbH & Co. KG
AP-Concept GmbH & Co. KG is a company specialising in the disposal of household and commercial waste paper. Paper is sorted there and prepared for the paper mill.
Waste paper yard for baled goods
At the waste paper yard, magazines, newspapers, cuttings, pages of books and household recycling waste are stacked and stored in pressed bales in the open air in piles as high as houses.
Waste paper storage hall for loose waste paper
Loose waste paper is stored in bays in a hall and transported to waste paper processing by conveyor belt.
Waste paper processing
In waste paper processing, the waste paper is dissolved, foreign objects are filtered out and printing ink is removed.
Paper machine 6
Offset papers for a wide range of catalogues, journals, magazines and flyers are produced on paper machine 6.
The offset papers are finished, packaged and shipped in reel format for further processing on web offset presses.
Fully automatic reel store
Logistics 4.0: Electronically controlled grippers and conveyor belts move heavy reels around this unmanned reel store.
Paper machine 4
This is where printing and photocopying papers are produced. They come out as huge reels of continuous paper with a length of 50 kilometres and a weight of 25 tonnes.
Printing and photocopying paper finishing
At the next station, printing and photocopying papers are cut into A4 sheets and packed in wrappers and boxes specified by customers.
Fully automated pallet warehouse
There are 12,000 pallet spaces on several levels.
At loading, pallets of A4 paper are stored temporarily until they get sent out to customers.
Laboratory and technical centre
Papers undergo strict production and quality monitoring at our laboratory and technical centre, to ensure they meet the requirements of all commonly used devices.
Our administrative departments are situated near to technology and management in the administration wing, which is centrally located on the factory premises.
Fully biological treatment plant
Our water cycles are almost completely closed. Surface water taken from the Elbe and a small amount of wastewater are treated in the company’s own fully biological wastewater treatment plant.
At EBS-Concept GmbH, leftover waste is sorted and substitute fuels are produced to generate energy at the combined heat and power plant.
Combined heat and power plant
The combined heat and power plant produces 100% of the thermal energy required by Steinbeis Papier and around 50% of the electrical energy, thus achieving an efficiency of 87%.
