At Metsä Fibre, our target is to be completely fossil fuel free by 2030. In fact, our mills already produce more than enough bioenergy to meet their own process needs, giving us a surplus that we sell to the national grid. By using closed loops and using 100% of our side-streams, we will continue to improve our energy and raw material efficiency.
An example of this unique approach is our bioproduct mill in Äänekoski, Finland, which is a world leader in the production of innovative bioproducts, raw material efficiency, and energy efficiency. An entire ecosystem of companies, which utilize our process side-streams to develop commercially viable bioproducts, is growing around the new mill site.
