Our €125 million investment at Syktyvkar includes the replacement of three old biofuel boilers and four turbines. The new biofuel boiler and turbine are due to start up in 2019. The project will significantly increase the energy efficiency and reduce the carbon intensity of the mill. It enables the mill to use its bark and sewage sludge for energy generation without additional drying. The investment will also substitute some 128 million m3 of natural gas, resulting in a total capacity for green energy generation of 170 MW. Scope 1 emissions will be reduced by some 87,700 tonnes per annum, about 4% of the current total, mainly through higher electrical efficiency and fuel switching.
