Our waste reuse rate across the Group is around 97% already today. We are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to reuse materials that would otherwise end up as wastes.
Stora Enso’s production processes generate various wastes, the vast majority of which are reused as residuals. Such materials include biomass fibres, ash from energy production, lime solids from pulping processes, and wastewater treatment sludge. Many of these materials are used for our internal bioenergy production, or for agricultural purposes, brick manufacturing and road construction by our stakeholders.
