UPM engaged with ICCT, ECF and other partners to discuss sustainability requirements of biofuels, policy needs and the opportunities of advanced biofuels for several years. "The Biofrontiers has been extremely useful as it has brought together the ENGOs and the advanced biofuels industry. UPM recognises the need to ensure common understanding on high sustainability requirements. It is crystal clear we need to get high quality advanced biofuels into the market. UPM has been producing renewable diesel from residues since early 2015, and we see how huge the demand is for sustainable, high quality advanced biofuels," says Marko Janhunen, Vice President, Stakeholder Relations in UPM Biorefining. click Read More below for additional detail
Burgo Group S.p.A., one of the main European producers of graphical and special papers, announces the start of the reconversion plan of Line 2 of the Avezzano (AQ) paper mill, from graphical paper to container board, with a view to making the mill a true national centre of excellence for cardboard production.
The operation is part of the Group’s diversification strategy which foresees entry into the cardboard market, ranging from publishing and towards packaging, from printing paper to paper for corrugators.
In particular, the operation foresees a revamping of the paper machine (PM2), changing the machine head and a new pulp preparation, as well as works on the building where the machine is located.
At the end of the conversion plan, planned for the end of 2017, the Avezzano paper mill will be about to count a regular production capacity of 200,000 tonnes and make medium corrugating and double-layer testliner destined for the production of corrugated board.
