Investment in the modernization of recovery boiler at Kotka mill

Kotkamills Oy invests in Kotka mill’s recovery boiler by renewing the bottom of the boiler and implementing new air distribution technology. The modernization work is supplied by Andritz Oy and the value of the investment is approximately 3 million euros. The renewal work will be carried out during year 2013.

The main targets of this investment are the improvement of energy efficiency and the reduction of air emissions.

Modernization investment will have a decade’s-worth of positive impact also on the production of Absorbex® kraft paper. Absorbex® is produced mostly from the sawdust pulp produced by the company’s own pulp mill. This way the company uses the by-product of its own sawmill, sawdust, to manufacture this export product, often with a life cycle of decades in its end use applications.
