Explore innovation in depth
R&D is focused on helping to achieve our ambitious but achievable strategy of extracting more value from each tree and leveraging the changing dynamics between the environment, consumers and the products they require.
In the black
Black liquor, a by-product of the pulping process is sometimes referred to as ‘black gold’ because of the high levels of energy it contains.
Combining forces to use waste heat
Gratkorn Mill in Austria has partnered with local energy provider Bioenergie Wärmeservice GmbH (BWS) to supply industrial waste heat generated by the mill’s combined heat and power (CHP) plant to Energie Graz for the next 20 years.
Rethinking energy and society
Climate change has resulted in shifting seasons and climbing temperatures, threatening to deprive us of the very things – air, water, food and a safe place to live – we depend on for survival.
Diving deep into more sustainable pulping technology
Currently, pulping of wood to isolate cellulose fibres for paper production uses energy-intensive technologies developed more than a century ago that require fossil chemicals.
A sweet success
The recyclability of products has become just as important to consumers as quality and price. At the same time, consumers are also insisting on food packaging that’s safe.
A responsible solution
There is a global movement to limit or eliminate solvent-based casting systems in order to reduce chemical waste and pollution.
The circular economy is regenerative by design and aims to gradually decouple growth from the consumption of finite resources.
Unlocking wastewater opportunities at Lanaken Mill
In June 2019, Sappi Europe completed the re-build of PM8 at Lanaken Mill. The mill can now produce woodfree coated paper in addition to lightweight coated paper.
Cleaning up
In an uncertain world, the need for sanitiser driven by COVID-19 is certain to remain. Achieving the desired viscosity of sanitising gel can be challenging.
