Obbola, Sweden 08 February 2018 -- SCA will commence an environmental impact assessment of a possible investment in a new paper machine at the paper mill in Obbola.
Under investigation is a production increase from the current 450,000 tons of kraftliner per year to 850,000 tons of kraftliner per year. To supply a larger paper machine with fiber, production of pulp based on both fresh fiber and recovered fiber would have to increase.
"No decision has been taken," says Obbola paper mill Acting Plant Manager Per Strand. "We're seeing a long-term increase in demand for packaging paper, and we're investigating different development opportunities for the paper mill. Environmental conditions are an important factor in being able to assess various development alternatives, which is why we're now starting this impact assessment."
The Obbola paper mill will begin the assessment by inviting in government authorities and nearby residents to present the potential development plans.
The Obbola paper mill produces 450,000 tons of kraftliner per year and has approximately 300 employees.
