Construction of a 300,000 tpa biorefinery
SCA Biorefinery Östrand is planning to build a new biorefinery at its Östrand pulp mill site. Around 300,000 tonnes of biofuels would be produced each year for transportation uses, along with 120,000 tonnes of biocoal to be processed into pellets and 110,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
Following an environmental impact assessment, it is hoped that the permitting process will be initiated. This is expected to happen by the end of the year.
This project is now available to access without subscription for the next 7 days. To find out more about the development, click here.
