Proposed development of a biorefinery
UPM has completed an environmental impact assessment (EIA) to determine the feasibility of a new biorefinery in Mussalo, Kotka. It is part of a pre-study phase that is expected to last a year.
The facility would process sustainable raw materials to produce around 500,000 tonnes of advanced biofuels for use in road transport, marine and aviation sectors.
UPM is looking to explore the use of sustainable feedstocks, including wood and agricultural residues.
