NORRKOPING, Sweden, June 25, 2013 (Press Release) -The Board of Directors at Fiskeby decided to invest in a biogas plant at the mill in Norrköping at the last board meeting.

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.
