About half of our production is shipped to Metsä Board Husum mill to be used as material for the middle layer of paperboard. We also supply pulp to Metsä Tissue for tissue paper production, where the benefits of BCTMP are its high whiteness, purity and excellent consistency. 

Established in 2005, the mill is located on the west coast of Finland. Nearly all of the production is shipped from the nearby harbour. The steam and heat required by the mill is produced by its own bioenergy-based plant and the unique recovery boiler.

All the wood raw material the mill uses is traceable and comes from sustainably managed Northern European forests, which are either PEFC or FSC® certified, or meet the criteria for controlled origin. The mill is committed to Metsä Board’s target of achieving completely fossil free mills and products by the end of 2030.
