The investment will lead to a safer workplace and reduction of emissons to air and water. The new chemical plant is expected to be completed by the end of 2017 and the investment is very important for the continuous development of Skoghall Mill.
The project includes new process equipment for the production of chlorine dioxide and bisulfite as well as a new chemical storage. The investment will improve the working environment for the operators who run the process and it will also reduce the emissions of chlorine dioxide and sulfur dioxide. Improved safety and reduced environmental impact are the main drivers behind the investment.
"We are very happy for this investment. It shows that Stora Enso wants to continue the development of Skoghall Mill", says Peter Olsson, Manager of Technology & Investments at Skoghall.
