The aim of the project is to extract green oil from forestry residues such as branches, tops and stumps. The project is based on the idea of producing a new type of commercial fuel at a full-scale facility at Skärblacka Mill.
"We are delighted at the EU's affirmative response to this forward-looking venture. On the basis of this positive decision, we will now continue with our project planning and I anticipate news on the way ahead in 2013", says Per Lindberg, President and CEO, BillerudKorsnäs.
BillerudKorsnäs is engaged in discussion with joint venture partners who are interested in a future supply of green oil from forest raw materials.
