Renewable products from northern forests

Renewable wood from northern forests is the main raw material used in Metsä Group’s products. We make full use of each tree that is felled to ensure nothing goes to waste. Every part of the tree is used in the way that produces the greatest value.

Log wood is used for wood products, including peeled veneer products (Kerto), plywood and sawn timber. Pulpwood is used to produce pulp, which is a raw material for paperboard and printing, tissue and speciality papers.

The bark, branches and crowns are in turn used in energy production. We also strive to use production side streams for new bioeconomy products. This is a prime example of the circular economy!
