Raw material from the sawmill
CTMP plant grinds chips for use as raw material for the middle layer of paperboard.
Of the raw material 50% becomes sawn wood. The by-product from sawing, sawdust, is cooked into cellulose pulp.
Utilised for energy to power Kotkamills operations.
The cutting edge technology enables the production of easily recyclable and biodegradable barrier boards at competitive costs, unlike many other environmentally friendly alternatives items.
Building this unique paperboard machine in Kotka enabled our Consumer Boards to set out on changing the game in plastic-free convenience. It is our blueprint that we can replicate anywhere in the world.
Our Saturating Base Kraft Absorbex® assists us in the sustainability challenge by offering laminating base paper grades that act as effective carbon sink for great many years in long lasting end products.
Over 50 years of continuous development and spotting new opportunities has led to our saturating base kraft paper range becoming known around the world. For the power of wood built into daily life.
