Mill products will be made from renewable raw materials derived from sustainably managed forests. The forests of Finland are a net carbon sink. Their growth binds more carbon than isreleased through forestry and natural attrition.
We can also cut fossil fuel consumption by promoting the use of cellulose for more long-term recyclable products, such as packaging cartons, biocomposites and clothing, together with a wide variety of products based on tall oil, turpentine and lignin.
Minimising energy consumption in mill departments was an objective underlying the entire design of the bioproduct mill. On-site operations will rely solely on renewable energy generated from process side streams, with surplus output fed into the public energy grid. The debarking, automated pulp storage and wood transport operations will also be electrified.
Energy self-sufficiency: 240%
Increase in the proportion of renewable energy used in Finland: 2%
Proportion of certified wood raw material: 90%
Utilisation of wood raw material and side streams: 100%
