The production of pulp and paper is water intensive, so we manage water wisely and responsibly. Wherever possible and economically feasible, we recycle water to conserve this important resource and support our energy approach. At our Syktyvkar mill, we use warm water from the bleaching process as filtrate to de-ice conveyors at the wood yard during the cold winters, when temperatures can reach –30°C. In the past, we heated up fresh water from the nearby river. Using the waste water from the pulp process has enabled us to save 0.7 million m³ of fresh water a year and 61.5 TJ of energy, equivalent to saving 3,350 tonnes of CO2e.
