METSÄ TISSUE’S MÄNTTÄ MILL NO LONGER USES PEAT IN ITS ENERGY PRODUCTION

In accordance with its sustainability objectives, Metsä Tissue, part of Metsä Group, is carrying out its transition towards fossil free mills and has given up peat in its energy production at the Mänttä mill. Renewable wood fuels, such as bark and other by-products of wood production, have replaced peat. The new main boiler and the decision to end the usage of peat have had a considerable positive impact on carbon dioxide emissions from the Mänttä mill. Currently, the fossil-based CO2 emissions of the mill are around 50% lower than in 2017, which is equivalent to an estimated overall emissions reduction of 59,000 tCO2. The Mänttä mill has been awarded the Nordic Swan and the EU Flower ecolabels, which ensure that production complies with strict environmental criteria. Metsä Tissue’s Mänttä mill produces tissue paper products sold under the brands Serla, Lambi and Katrin, customers’ private label products, as well as greaseproof and baking papers sold under the SAGA brand.
