「Metsäグループの目標は、北部の木材を益々価値の高い製品に加工することである。CO2回収が実施されれば、フィンランドにおける重要な新しい化学産業のチャンスが開き、フィンランドの水素経済が促進されるだろう」と、Metsäグループ戦略担当執行副社長(EVP, Strategy)のSari Pajari-Sederholm氏は述べた。



Metsä Group and ANDRITZ investigate CCS on wood processing mill

The study focuses on the capture of four million tonnes of carbon dioxide from the largest wood-processing mill in the northern hemisphere.

The study will determine the optimal size of a recovery system that would be the most energy efficient combined with the bioproduct mill, as well as the cooling and logistical requirements of the system. The goal is to use the electricity, heat and steam generated in the bioproduct mill as efficiently as possible so that no waste heat is generated.

This work follows on from the carbon capture study launched in 2023. Carbon dioxide capture using an amine solution is an existing proven technology that has been used for decades around the world. However, combining this technology with a pulp or bioproduct mill is a new development.

After the investigation with ANDRITZ, the project will proceed to the pilot phase in Metsä Group’s mill area in Rauma in 2025. If carbon dioxide capture proves viable, a new high-volume wood-based raw material will emerge for the forest industry.

“Our goal at Metsä Group is to process northern wood into increasingly valuable products. If implemented, carbon dioxide capture would open up opportunities for a significant new chemical industry in Finland and boost the Finnish hydrogen economy,” said Sari Pajari-Sederholm, Metsä Group’s EVP, Strategy.
