Stories from the world of pulp, sawn timber and other bioproducts
With the marine logistics in order, good delivery reliability extends across oceans. The careful optimisation of pulp and sawn timber shipments reduces transport costs, but also the carbon dioxide emissions of transport.
The pulp mills of Metsä Fibre are already in energy surplus, generating more energy than they consume. But there’s always room for improvement, meaning even higher energy efficiency. Shared goals and operating methods are the key to success.
Environmental concerns, demographic changes, and evolving technology are the key megatrends of the 21st century. Their impact is also visible in Metsä Fibre’s strategy and day-to-day operations, as solutions for many of the world’s problems are to be found in wood or fibre-based products.
Production Engineer Victoria Eklund truly enjoys working at the Renko sawmill. The workplace atmosphere is open and honest.
An investment in a new paper machine is to double the tissue paper production of Century Pulp and Paper. Metsä Fibre sells pulp to the Indian market in cooperation with its Japanese partner, Itochu.
In addition to pulp and other bioproducts, Metsä Fibre’s pulp mills produce a significant amount of renewable energy. Surplus electricity from the mills is enough for 70,000 electrically heated detached houses.
Metsä Fibre is participating in the ExpandFibre co-operation, which aims to develop technologies and business concepts around new bioproducts.
At Metsä Fibre, we plan to produce even more high-quality sawn timber in the future. This way, we’ll ensure that both our delivery and our customers’ supply chains are reliable.
