TreeToTextile: Yet a unique plant at Nymölla Mill

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.

It’s a EUR 35 million investment to upscale the process technology needed to create a sustainable textile fiber for all – with scalable technology and a low manufacturing cost.
The demo plant will primarily use dissolving pulp from Stora Enso’s Enocell Mill in Finland: renewable, 100% traceable to sustainably managed forests close to the mill.

“We are moving further down the value chain. TreeToTextile means new opportunities, not just for the forest industry. On this journey we collaborate with other industry leaders, and while our challenges may differ, we all share the same ambitious commitment to create a more sustainable future,” says Chairwoman of TreeToTextileRoxana Barbieru, and Vice President, Emerging Businesses and Alliances Management from Stora Enso’s Biomaterials innovation team.

Responsible forestry

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.

An icon that is anything but symbolic

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.
