The board and paper industry takes seriously its environmental responsibilities and increasingly strict energy and environmental regulations also call for the reduction of greenhouse gases, more efficient use of energy and raw materials, as well as improved recycling and use of renewable energy sources.
Our key objective is to enhance the competitiveness of our customers’ processes by improving the productivity and efficiency of their production lines and promoting sustainable paper production through the best available technology and innovative technological solutions.
Valmet’s sustainable solutions enable the efficient use of materials and energy in production processes, recycling, the conservation of water, the reduction of emissions, dust and noise, and the optimization of processes. Process optimization, together with the right wear and spare parts and maintenance services, helps to minimize the environmental impact of products throughout their lifecycles.
Our comprehensive services and automation offering help to maximize the environmental efficiency of the technologies and ensures operational safety and reliability over the entire lifetime of the plant.
Safety has seldom been seen as the main driving force behind modernizing a paper machine. But for Stora Enso's BM5 in Tainionkoski in Finland it was. To ensure mills safety performance, Valmet delivered safer winder, transfer rails from reel to winder, and some measurements and controls for the board machine.
Material efficiency means producing the same end result with reduced amounts or lower grades of raw materials. This applies particularly to paper and board manufacturing, but also to certain aspects of machinery construction.
Valmet works systematically to ensure more responsible business practices throughout its global supply chain. Close collaboration with our suppliers also leads to increased customer benefits and enhanced transparency in the value chain. Case Outokumpu.
OptiConcept M is the paper machine of the future with integrated industrial internet. Consume 30% less energy, use 40% less hall space and create 430 000 kg less machinery related CO2 emissions while producing the board or paper end quality that your customers need.
As part of the Slush evening for circular and clean solutions, Valmet participated a panel discussion arranged by the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra. The discussion revolved around smart water and marine solutions.
“There are ten sustainability issues that should be of importance to all major companies,” says Tobias Webb, founder of Innovation Forum in London.
