Recon tobacco is a true all-rounder – it is already in use today as conventional cigarettes filler, as cigars wrapper and is the base component in the production of Heated Tobacco Products (HTP). Recon foils containing hemp components, or enriched with cloves for kretek, even offer opportunities for completely new products.
Garbuio offers various processes for the reconstituted tobacco used in THP. The various recon products have very different properties in terms of their chemical and physical consistency and their smoke profile. The choice of process depends on the product characteristics required by the customer. We can provide our customers with the appropriate Primary machines and services for all variants. Our recon production technology supports conventional recon as well as THP applications. For example, we have developed a pilot plant for recon, based on extrusion and rolling technology that aims for exceptionally gentle drying and a very firm product.
