Metsä is working with equipment and automation system suppliers on the concept development, which will include a review of all the operational processes of a tissue paper mill, from raw materials and production to converting, dispatch and warehouse operations.

The review aims to find out whether a new concept could significantly improve product quality, the efficiency of production and the use of resources. In creating the concept, the group will also explore the possibility of building a fully fossil-free mill.

The review will also determine the automation potential in the entire process alongside the current status of mill systems, so a development roadmap can be defined.

Jari Tiura, SVP, operations, is responsible for the operational review.
