An energy saving, emission control and tobacco yield enhancement strategy for the cigarette manufacturing industry.


Secondary solutions

With energy costs and environmental concerns on the rise, optimising energy consumption in cigarette production is essential. As a result of our research and development and intensive development cooperation, Riedel developed the GreenLine concept, which is supported by the Maker Airflow Control (MAC), SACU tobtronic®, SoftClean and state-of-the-art Eco Mode automation system and achieves significant energy savings.
