From 1985 the paper industry gradually converted to neutral processing, and Hydrocarb M became “state of the art”. The more Hydrocarb M in the paper, the better, cheaper and more environmentally friendly the paper becomes.

The Hydrocarb M products became a success, and made Hustadmarmor the main supplier of calcite marble-based pigment to the paper industry in Northern Europe. With its “always in time” approach and best quality, Hustadmarmor developed into the largest calcite marble-based pigment plant in the world.

Hydrocarb M products are mainly sold to the paper industry, but also for the manufacture of paint, plastic, medicinal products etc. 100% of the production is exported. 

The use of Hydrocarb M in paper increases quality and reduces the paper mills’ need for wood fibre, electricity and chemicals.
