Metsä Fibre builds a bioproduct mill in Äänekoski, Finland

Metsä Fibre, part of Metsä Group, builds a bioproduct mill in Äänekoski, Finland in the area of the existing pulp mill. The construction work will begin immediately. The mill is scheduled to be completed during the third quarter of 2017.

The new mill will be the world's first next-generation bio-product mill that can convert wood raw material into a diverse range of products. In addition to high-quality pulp, the mill will produce bio-energy and various bio-materials in a resource-efficient way. A unique bio-economy ecosystem of companies will be built around pulp production.
