SCA examining doubling in capacity at Obbola mill

23.02.2018 − 

SCA is commissioning an environment impact assessment to examine the effects of enlarging the capacity of the Obbola pulp and paper mill from the present 450,000 t to 850,000 t p.a. in future. According to a report published on 8 February, the study will also examine the additional requirement of virgin and recycled fibres resulting from an increased capacity.

According to information from works manager Per Strand, no definitive decision has been made yet. The environmental impact assessment will also play a part in exploring a variety of development options for the facility. The plans for Obbola are comparable with the ongoing expansion of the Östrand pulp mill. Enlarging Östrand’s production capacity from the original 430,000 t to 900,000 t p.a. in future is currently on schedule. The facility is scheduled to be put into operation in June this year.
