The plant is up and running!

Converting process water residue into biogas

As of April 27th , 2021 the biogas plant at Nymölla mill is in use. We are very happy and proud that this unique facility, built in partnership with Gasum, is now a reality. It changes the game for Stora Enso, customers and consumers alike.

The plant is an important step towards a fossil-free future – an initiative that is turning heads and raising hopes. As climate change awareness increases, so does the number of corporations on Multicopy’s markets seeking products that match their sustainability requirements. It sure bodes well!

Stora Enso posted an article on the inauguration of the biogas plant, the importance of offering a more sustainable solution – and some reactions from partners and the company’s office paper management, like this quote from Jonathan Bakewell, VP, Office Papers, Stora Enso Paper Division.

 “I’ve been in this industry for a long time. If anyone had told me we could make liquid biogas out of process water, I would have said I am more likely to get Brad Pitt’s looks and Steve Job’s brains!”
