Värö world’s first fossil-fuel-free pulp mill
Södra Cell has completed the investments, which make its Värö mill the world’s first fossil-fuel-free pulp mill.
Södra has made extensive energy investments at Södra Cell Värö over the past few years. These investments mean that the pulp mill will now be free from fossil fuels. Of late, Södra has spent 600 million Kronor building a new evaporation plant for a more energy-efficient mill; a feed water preheating to produce more electricity; flue gas cooling for more district heating; and bark drying for optimum fuel for district heating supplies.
These investments have just been completed this spring and form part of an investment program, which has been ongoing since 2002, worth 1.7 billion Kronor to date. An inauguration ceremony was held at the mill a few days ago.
