Pulp and paper manufacturer Stora Enso has launched a feasibility study to assess the potential to further reduce CO2 emissions at the group’s Imatra site in Finland.

The group believes that replacing fossil-based fuels with bio-based materials would improve the environmental performance of the site.

Imatra Site
The Imatra site is one of the world’s largest production sites for consumer packaging board, with more than 90% of goods produced there exported to Europe, Southeast Asia, and other continents.

The group's feasibility study is expected to be finalised in mid-2023.

The planned changes will require investment, which will be looked into after the feasibility study is finalised.

Mill director Mikko Nieminen, said, “We have already done a lot to reduce the emissions of the site. A new, more efficient wood handling and debarking line will be finalised during the autumn, reducing the water consumption up to 85% in the debarking line.

“The recycling and further usage of waste generated at the mill is already today world-class, exceeding 99%. Now we are studying the possibility to reduce the fossil CO2 emissions even further, aiming approximately to a 45% reduction.”
