Stories from the world of pulp, sawn timber and other bioproducts
The construction work for the Rauma sawmill has moved to constructing the frames and casting for the foundations. The first equipment will be installed during the first half of 2021.
Growing forests remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and sawn timber stores carbon for decades.
Wooden houses are an effective way to combat the climate change. New wood construction is based on industrially manufactured materials and large elements, from which houses can be assembled quickly.
Metsä Fibre seeks to genuinely understand the various local stakeholders in the regions where its mills are located. In Äänekoski, the bioproduct mill is present in the everyday life of the local inhabitants in many ways.
The sustainability of the sawn timber produced by Metsä Fibre is based on sustainably managed forests, certified and traceable wood raw material, and low-carbon production.
Not a splinter goes to waste at Metsä Fibre's sawmills. The materials not fit for conversion are used in the production of bioenergy. Thanks to the meticulous use of wood, the sawmills are virtually fossil-free.
Metsä Fibre aims to be the world's most responsible pulp producer. This is why its pulp mills must replace all of their fossil fuels with biofuels. Reliability in matters involving sustainability also benefits customers.
Bioproducts made from renewable raw materials are replacing fossil raw materials. Metsä Fibre’s unique bioproduct mill concept takes resource efficiency to a whole new level. The basic idea is to make use of 100 percent of the different parts of a tree.
