Stora Enso is planning to build a pre-commercial plant for the production of mircofibrillated cellulose (MFC) at its Imatra mill. MFC is a new type of renewable material that is supposed to be used in existing and new fibre-based paper and board products as well as in barrier materials. Packaging materials containing MFC are said to be lighter and stronger, according to Stora Enso. The company plans to invest €10m in the pre-commercial facility, which is planned to be commissioned by the end of 2011.
