Holmen Paper Madrid was divested on the 1st of July 2016. In the table above Holmen Paper Madrid is included.

 

  1. At Group level, wood consumption is computed net, taking into account internal deliveries of chips from the sawmills to the nearby mills.
  2. Figure adjusted.
  3. 100 per cent active substance. Total quantity of commodities was 213 000 tonnes for chemicals and 204 000 tonnes for filler and pigment.
  4. Thermal energy is produced from the electricity used in the production of thermo-mechanical pulp at Braviken Paper Mill and Hallsta Paper Mill; this is recovered and used in production.
  5. The reporting includes data for gas consumption and associated emissions linked to Holmen’s share of electricity production at the half-owned cogeneration (COGEN) plant at Holmen Paper Madrid. The data also includes natural gas and oil used at the mills.
  6. In 2015, emissions of fossil carbon dioxide from production of purchased electrical energy (net) totalled around 60 tonnes. Calculated for emissions from the operation of Vattenfall’s power plant for electricity production during the year. Corresponding emissions for the operation of Holmen’s power plant totalled around 120 tonnes.
  7. For delivery to the chemical industry.
  8. By-products used, for example, as filling material, construction material or for the production of soil products.
  9. Hazardous waste is dealt with by an authorised collection and recovery contractor. Certain fractions of the waste are recovered. Oil-containing waste from docking ships is dealt with at port facilities at three Holmen mills. Such waste is included in the figures for hazardous waste. The volume of this waste in 2015 totalled 631 tonnes.
  10. Branches, treetops and peat delivered from Holmen’s land to external energy producers.
  11. For 2015; 125 GWh electrical energy, supplied from the mill in Workington to the local community, 5 GWh electrical energy from Holmen Paper Madrid to the COGEN cogeneration plant. 201 GWh thermal energy from Iggesund Mill and Braviken Paper Mill to Iggesund Sawmill and Braviken Sawmill, 17 GWh thermal energy from Hallsta Paper Mill and Iggesund Mill to the district heating network of the local communities.
