Exclusive look inside Sweden’s greenest paper mill

August 25, 2009

For most of us, printing e-mails or making copies is just part of the daily routine in the office. But, the paper we use does come from somewhere. Last week, we had the opportunity to visit Stora Enso’s Nymolla Mill in southern Sweden to get an exclusive look at how MultiCopy paper is made. Nymolla is an integrated mill (it produces pulp and paper on the same site) and most of the wood used is sourced locally. Also interesting, the mill is the only one I could find in the world that emits zero carbon dioxide from fossil fuels during the paper making process. Check out my look inside the Nymolla Mill.

Great Northern Paper Co in E. Millinocket Maine is a pulp and paper factory. Ground wood process with a bio mass boiler and hydro electric power. Been that way for 20 years. Once the largest producer of newsprint in the world. Zero carbon footprint? Nah. Trees dont walk into the mill on their own. Probably don’t in Sweden either.
