‘We Must Grow—In All Areas’, Paper360º May/June 2020
With some 52,000 ambitious forest owners as members, it’s not only planting a lot more trees that is in the cards at Södra, although that is happening as well. The company recently launched a multi-million seedling program that will see it produce 20 percent higher for-est growth heading toward 2050. Yet there are also rafts of other things going on at the com-pany, including ongoing capacity expansion and major innovation in new product areas, including biofuels and textiles.
But first there is the pulp. Producing some 1.85 million metric tpy, Södra cell is one of the largest market pulp producers in the world, making a wide range of mainly softwood grades for varying paper properties. It also makes 170,000 tpy of dissolving pulp for textiles. The company operates from three mills across the south of Sweden—Värö, Mönsterås, and Mörrum—and each site has seen major programs of expansion and updating, including additional investments for the conversion of side streams to produce new bioproducts.
