The paper industry is energy intensive. However, the carbon intensity is mitigated by the extensive use of bio-energy in the sector.
We focus our efforts on reducing specific types of energy usage and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by investing in more energy-efficient systems such as Combined Heat & Power (CHP) plants, alternative energy options such as biomass, and by driving production efficiencies.
Over 63% of the electricity that is used in our mills is produced by CHP, which is the most efficient way of transforming fuel like biomass, natural gas or coal into electricity and/or heat.
The biomass we use as fuels, are typically residues from forest management operations, waste from sawmills and/or other residues from wood handling activities.
