The mill is located on the shores of the Bothnian Sea, in the Kemijoki delta. The pulp and energy required by the mill is supplied by Metsä Fibre's bioproduct mill on the same site. The strong synergies of the integrate will support the development of the mill also in the future. The development programme, completed in 2023, will increase the annual production capacity of Kemi corrugated board to 465 000 tonnes and improve the water and energy efficiency of the mill.
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.
