UPM Biochemicals’ Leuna biorefinery receives first delivery of wood

December 12, 2022 |

In Germany, UPM Biochemicals’ biorefinery at Leuna in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, moved one step closer to creating the world beyond fossils when the first delivery of wood from sustainably managed regional forests arrived in mid-November.

The wood is both a symbolic first and an important practical step – it will enable UPM Biochemicals to begin testing its wood handling and processing activities. At the same time, it is now able to establish reliable supply chains and processes for future wood-sourcing operations and logistics chains. Finally, this event underlines the overall progress made on-site and the growing maturity of the company’s business platform.

One hundred per cent of the wood used to produce UPM’s renewable biochemicals is either FSC®- or PEFC™-certified, sourced from regional beechwood forests, conserving biodiversity and natural ecosystems. All the wood used is fully traceable and supported by a verified third-party chain of custody.
