Board mills switching to biofuel

Iggesund Paperboard inaugurated the new recovery boiler at its mill in Sweden, at the end of September. The new boiler makes it possible for Iggesund to increase production of its Invercote paperboard, and enables the mill to operate on 100% biofuel and to be self-sufficient in energy, both thermal and electric.

Construction of the recovery boiler took two years and cost SEK2.3 billion (€240 million). The company is also building a biofuel boiler at its mill in Workington, UK. That investment, for the production of the Incada paperboard, will cost SEK1.1 billion (€123 million) and involves a radical change of energy source from today’s fossil natural gas to bioenergy. The new boiler at Workington is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2013.
