The Nordenham finishing mill is situated in the town of Nordenham, Federal Republic of Germany, on the banks of the Weser River opposite the town of Bremerhaven, with access by water to the North Sea.
The unfinished fibre, shipped from Deception Bay during the sub-Arctic summer shipping season, is unloaded from bulk ocean carriers, stored and then processed throughout the year until the following shipping season.
This paper describes the unloading and storage facilities, the finishing mill and the finished-fibre storage arrangement. Details of environmental and dust control practices and West German environmental standards arc, discussed. A resume of fibre markets is included.
