Forestrich in resourcesPeopletrusted to performProductswe believe in

Holmen's mills produce paper and paperboard using wood, recovered paper, water and electricity. The process is so technology-intensive and complex that a whole range of questions still remain unanswered: What new areas of use are there for the residual products that are formed during the manufacturing process? How can we optimise our energy supply? How can wastewater be treated more efficiently? And many more...
