Workington Mill in northern England is an integrated mill which manufactures folding box board (FBB, GC1, GC2) from bleached mechanical pulp with outer layers of bleached chemical pulp.
The product family is called Incada and used for packaging of confectionery, cosmetics, wine, spirits, frozen and dry food, tobacco and for greeting cards and book covers.
In 2013 Iggesund Paperboard’s new biofuel boiler in Workington came online. By switching its energy source from fossil natural gas to biomass, the company has permanently eliminated annual fossil carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to those from more than 65,000 cars a year.
