How the TDA line works
The raw material – tobacco, hemp or clove – is first ground to a powder. Moist components are then mixed in to produce a dough, which is rolled out and dried. If this recon film is destined for use as Primary addback, it is then cut to form recon flakes, packed in a box and added later in the Primary process. If it is to be used in the production of THP or for wrapping cigars, it is wound on a bobbin. Garbuio and Hauni can also use the pilot plant in Bergedorf to produce tobacco sticks based on strip or cross cut for its customers.
