Fiskeby invests in the construction of a so-called anaerobic water purification process directly linked to the company's existing water treatment plant. In this anaerobic purification process biogas is formed. The biogas can then be used as energy in the production of cartonboard, replacing electricity. There are several opportunities to exploit the gas and one of the most environmentally interesting is the operation of the dryers that are used in the production of our board.
Since 2010, the Swedish government has assigned investment resources annually to support the introduction of new technologies and solutions that enhance energy production and Swedish Energy Agency has granted Fiskeby 12.6 million SEK for the construction of a biogas plant.
Start of construction: 2014
Start of production: 2015
Production: ca 1 milj Nm3 biogas/year, approximately 9 GWh/year
Investment: 47 MSEK
