With its almost unrivalled production efficiency, Braviken Paper Mill outside Norrköping combines technology and tradition with keen environmental awareness.
If you flick through a product catalogue, or read a pink sports or financial newspaper in one of Europe’s major cities, there is a good chance you’ll be holding a product from Braviken. Over 80 per cent of all the paper produced here is exported to markets outside Sweden.
Braviken Paper Mill is also located alongside Holmen’s sawmill, creating a bio co-location with environmental solutions for the future. The paper mill supplies the sawmill with energy and heat, and in return it gets raw material in the form of wood chips. Residual bark and wood shavings are then used for energy production and district heating.
