We now see a possibility to further increase production in a cost-efficient way by the end of 2022. This is a major first step toward the 850,000 tpy that is within the framework of the existing environmental permit,” said Marcus Åsgärde, Mill Manager for Södra Cell Värö.

A secure fibre base for the additional capacity is guaranteed as Södra will source the wood needed from the forest estates of its 53,000 members. The project is scheduled to start up in April 2022 and will ramp up until the end of the same year.
