In June we published an article about the biogas plant that is under construction at Nymölla paper mill in Sweden. A joint effort by Stora Enso and Gasum to turn residue from our production of Multicopy into renewable fuel – LBG. But what is biogas and what does the different abbreviations stand for? Here’s a brief what’s what.
Humans’ urge to communicate has always been strong – and with the evolution of paper, the written form of communicating opened a whole new world of efficiency, suddenly dismantling geographical boundaries. Naturally, the history of papermaking is closely connected to societal, industrial, and cultural events.
Eco-awareness and higher demands on sustainability features among customers tend to lead to good things. One current example is the initiated project at Stora Enso to certify all paper pulp grades as compostable, to helps consumers make more eco-friendly choices.
In 2021, the Multicopy production base in Nymölla mill took a step further in the fossil free journey, with Stora Enso entering a partnership with energy company Gasum. We had a talk with Erik Woode, Director, Project Development & Execution, at Gasum, to get a status update after one year of turning residue water from production into fossil free fuel.
