The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for UPM's possible Kotka Biorefinery in Finland has been completed and given to the authorities for their final conclusions. The UPM Kotka Biorefinery would produce approximately 500,000 tonnes of advanced biofuels made from sustainable raw materials for use in the road transport, marine and aviation sectors. The biorefinery's products could also be used for replacing fossil raw materials in the chemical industry. The renewable and sustainable raw materials and efficient processes of the possible Kotka Biorefinery enable significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil-based fuels and products.

An old nursery rhyme asks: How does your garden grow? We’d like to offer a new, sustainable answer: With help from recycled paper in your garden.
As amateur and even professional gardeners prepare for spring planting, many of them will use a sustainable resource — paper — in their gardens.
Paper, which is made from wood fiber, is naturally biodegradable and offers many benefits to the plants growing in your garden.
Here are four ways you can recycle paper products to improve your soil, reduce reliance on pesticides and enjoy your garden’s bounty:
- Use paper products as sustainable mulch.
- Let paper enhance your compost.
- Start your seeds in paper pots.
- Use paper in your garden to identify plants.
