The Kemi bioproduct mill is on schedule
Metsä Fibre’s investment in the new Kemi bioproduct mill will significantly strengthen our pulp production capacity and our delivery reliability. The mill will produce pulp for high-quality board and soft tissue for customers around the world. It will have a production capacity of 1.5 million tonnes of softwood and hardwood pulp per year, and it will create 0.9 million tonnes of additional market pulp capacity (0.8 softwood pulp and 0.1 hardwood pulp). This additional capacity will be very welcome in the market.
The Kemi bioproduct mill is scheduled to start up and begin producing pulp in the third quarter of 2023. It will use the best available technology and it will be a frontrunner in environmental, energy and material efficiency, and it will operate completely fossil-free.
Sustainable and responsibly produced pulp
At Metsä Fibre, we aim to make the most responsibly produced pulp in the world. Like all Metsä Fibre mills, the Kemi bioproduct mill will use Nordic wood from sustainably managed forests. It will use 100% of each tree and every possible side stream to maximise productivity and minimise waste, and it will also generate significantly more electricity than it uses. All of this wood will be 100% traceable to ensure that our entire supply chain operates responsibly. Furthermore, the new Kemi bioproduct mill will operate completely fossil-free, which will help us reach our 2030 targets.
