Stora Enso Nymölla

General Info

Stora Enso is an integrated paper, packaging and forest products company producing publication and fine papers, packaging boards and wood products, areas in which the Group is a global market leader.

Stora Enso's energy procurement and consumption is typified by a high share of CO2-neutral, wood-based bio-fuels in energy production (62% in 2002) and a trend towards combined heat and power production. The most important bio-fuel sources are black liquor and bark. Others are, for example, wood, paper, packaging materials (paperboard) and sludge from effluent purification. A significant proportion of the total amount of bio-fuels used by Stora Enso comes from own processes.

The production of wood-based bio-fuels gives Stora Enso an opportunity to participate in the emerging markets for Green Electricity. The Group is currently examining more ways to exploit these opportunities. The co-generation of electricity and heat linked to chemical pulp production, utilising by-products such as black liquor, bark and wood residuals, is particularly important in this respect.
