Metsä Fibre has taken another important step on the way to build a new biorefinery at Kemi site in Finland. According to the pre-feasibility study, the company would rather build a new pulp plant than modernise the existing plant.
Should Metsä finally decide to build this new plant, it might have a capacity of 1.5 million t of hard- and softwood pulp. The current Kemi pulp mill, which would be replaced by the new one, has a capacity of about 620,000 tonnes.
Furthermore, the development of Metsä Board Husum mill in Sweden was also subject of the pre-feasibility study.
Metsä Board and Metsä Fibre will now launch pre-engineering phases for three major investments.
