  1. 100 per cent active substance. The quantity of commodities was 38 950 tonnes for chemicals and 56 370 tonnes for filler and pigment.
  2. Thermal energy is produced from the electricity used in the production of thermo-mechanical pulp at Hallsta Paper Mill; this is recovered and used in production.
  3. New statistics for 2013.
  4. Hazardous waste is dealt with by an authorised collection and recovery contractor. Oil-containing waste from docking ships is dealt with at port facilities at three Holmen mills. For Hallsta Paper Mill the volume of this waste in 2015 totalled 460 tonnes (not included in the figure).
