Iggesund Paperboard's New Boiler Starts Up

Stockholm, Sweden, 06 June 2012 -- Iggesund Paperboard’s new recovery boiler and turbine is set to start at Iggesund Mill. At almost EUR 240 million, this is the mill’s largest investment ever.

The recovery boiler is the heart of a sulfate pulp mill and serves this function at Iggesund mill, which produces quality paperboard. The boiler is built to withstand higher pressure than any other recovery boiler in Europe. This increased pressure makes it possible to generate more electricity. The new turbine should be able to supply 520 GWh/year and make Iggesund Mill completely self-sufficient in electricity in the longer term.

Concurrently with the investment in its recovery boiler in Sweden, Iggesund Paperboard is investing EUR 123 million in a biofuel boiler at the mill in Workington, England. Both investments will help reduce carbon emissions from the mills.
