Metso is supplying a Lignoboost plant to Stora Enso’s new biorefinery

November 3, 2013 |

In Finland, Metso’s Pulp, Paper and Power business, the future Valmet, will supply a LignoBoost lignin separation plant to Stora Enso’s Sunila mill near Kotka. The order is one part of Stora Enso’s €32 million biorefinery project. The start-up is scheduled for the first quarter of 2015.

The LignoBoost plant is to be integrated with the pulp mill to separate and collect lignin from the black liquor. The new biorefinery will reduce the CO2 emissions of the mill by replacing a significant amount of natural gas with dried lignin fired in the lime kilns. This is also the first step towards the creation of a new business to sell lignin to external customers.
