• Voith's XcelLine paper machines win German Sustainability Award in the Design competition, Vision category;
• The future study "Papermaking Vision," which was presented last year, contributed significantly to the award;
• With leading solutions, Voith paper machines enable significant energy and water savings for the most resource-efficient operation possible.

Voith Paper's XcelLine paper machines won the third German Sustainability Award (DNP), presented last Thursday in Düsseldorf, [in the Design,] in the Design competition, Vision category.

The German Sustainability Award is the most comprehensive award of its kind in Europe, with eight competitions, a high number of applicants and more than 2,000 guests at the various closing events. The award is presented by the Stiftung Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitspreis e.V. (German Sustainability Award Foundation) in cooperation with the German government, leading municipal associations, business associations, civil society organizations and research institutions.

"We are overwhelmed that our paper machines prevailed among the many competitors. The award underlines our market-leading and innovative solutions that contribute significantly to a sustainable transformation in the paper industry."
Dr. Michael Trefz, President Projects at Voith Paper

The decisive factor for the DNP jury was the contribution to achieving the climate targets of the 2030 Agenda. The XcelLine paper machines convinced across the board with their highly efficient design and the resulting resource savings: From material selection and product design to optimal production operation and product durability, the modular paper machines set industry standards. The award in the Vision category is also based on the design study "Papermaking Vision," which Voith presented in 2021 and which shows the future of the papermaking process. The visionary concept is already being integrated step by step in customer projects and optimizes performance as well as design, safety, ease of operation and maintenance, and quality.

The design study also plays into the goals of Voith Paper's Papermaking for Life sustainability program.

At the ceremony, Prof. Michael Baumgart presented the German Sustainability Award to Dr.Christoph Lapp, Senior Vice President Product Management at Voith Paper. Copyrights: Dariusz Misztal.

"As the leading full-line supplier in the paper industry, we see it as our responsibility to provide our customers with the most sustainable and efficient paper production. In addition to technical performance, the focus of Voith's research and development teams has been on maximum sustainability and resource efficiency from the very beginning."
Dr. Michael Trefz, President Projects at Voith Paper

By 2030, the sustainability program aims to achieve 100% CO2-neutral paper production, reduce fresh water consumption by 90% and increase the paper recycling rate to 90%. To achieve this, Voith is relying on energy-optimized products, highly efficient solutions and disruptive innovations. Digitalization and automation solutions from the Papermaking 4.0 portfolio are further levers for optimal production. Sustainability is also deeply anchored in the company's own activities: Voith operates in a CO2-neutral manner at all its locations worldwide and was once again awarded a prime status of B- by the independent rating agency ISS ESG. This rating places Voith among the top three companies worldwide in the area of sustainability compared to 176 other plant and mechanical engineering companies.

"For our team, the German Sustainability Award is recognition and motivation to continue on the path towards resource efficiency in the long term."
Dr. Christoph Lapp, Senior Vice President Product Management at Voith Paper

The jury of the German Sustainability Award was convinced by Voith's holistic approach to playing a pioneering role in the paper industry, both today and in the future. Voith therefore "quite rightly" won the German Sustainability Award, said Prof. Michael Baumgart, founder of the Cradle to Cradle concept, at the award ceremony in Düsseldorf.
