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!”

Some people and organizations argue that old forests are more sustainable than new ones, no matter how responsible the forestry and harvesting. That any company who uses wood for its products is causing a major negative impact on our climate – when it comes to reduction of carbon emissions and the biodiversity of our forests. But it’s not a black and white question. As a matter of fact, there are several upsides to harvesting and managing forests to get a hold of the remarkable, renewable raw material called wood.
Alongside Gasum’s biogas plant at Nymölla mill, another sustainable initiative is in the making. All over the world, the demand for sustainable textile fibers is growing and the new facility is a demonstration plant for TreeToTextile, owned by Stora Enso, H&M Group, Inter IKEA Group, and LSCS Invest.
Gasum’s biogas plant at Nymölla Mill is now producing liquefied biogas (LBG) at full speed. We created an icon that communicates the benefits in a clear way; how we manage to, not only make use of residue from the process of turning wood into paper, but also make way for a fossil free future.
