Modernisation and upgrading operations supports energy and resource efficiencies as well as strengthening our leading position.
Mondi announced a €125 million investment to expand and upgrade semi-chemical flutting mill capacity at our Kuopio mill in Finland. This is a high-performance, top-quality containerboard grade used as a key component of fresh fruit and vegetable trays and boxes. The project includes an upgrade of the wood yard, fibre line, evaporation plant and paper machine.

All figures are accurate as of 15th March 2023 and relate to the Kuopio mill in Finland.
Thanks to the best technology available, production capacity will increase by 55,000 tonnes per annum and product quality will be enhanced to better serve growing customer demand. The long-term sustainability of the mill will also be considerably improved, further consolidating its place in the community.
Andrew King, Mondi Group CEO
The project is expected to increase production capacity by 55,000 tonnes each year. The long-term sustainability of the mill will be improved by boosting energy efficiency, reducing noise, odour emissions and effluent emissions, and by mitigating fibre loss in processing. The project will also result in a reduction of GHG emissions of 5,200 tonnes per annum.
