Kemi bioproduct mill project

Values guide Metsä Group's operations 

We are currently carrying out a pre-engineering project to build a new bioproduct mill in Kemi, Finland. If implemented in full, the total value of the investment would amount to EUR 1.5 billion. The target for the ongoing pre-engineering project is to create conditions for building a bioproduct mill with annual production capacity of approximately 1.5 million tonnes of softwood and hardwood pulp to Metsä Group’s current mill site in Kemi. In addition to pulp, the mill would produce various other bioproducts. The final investment decision related to Kemi bioproduct mill is expected to be made earliest in autumn 2020.
