Södra Cell has now completed the investments which make its Värö mill the world's first fossil-fuel-free pulp mill.

Södra has made extensive energy investments at Södra Cell Värö over the past few years. These investments mean that the pulp mill will now be free from fossil fuels.

Of late, we have spent SEK 600 million building:
. New evaporation plant - for a more energy-efficient mill
. Feed water preheating - to produce more electricity
. Flue gas cooling - for more district heating
. Bark drying - for optimum fuel for district heating supplies

These investments have just been completed this spring and form part of an investment programme which has been ongoing since 2002, worth SEK 1.7 billion to date.
