​How to reduce wasted coating colour - Kirkniemi Mill

Yes, I care.

Because I’ve always been aware of the environmental impact of my actions.

I work at the coating colour kitchen at the Kirkniemi Mill and noticed that small amounts of unused coating colour remained in the tank during the stand-stills, simply because the suction pipes didn’t reach the bottom of the tank. A minor investment made to adjust the pipes resulted not only in overall cost savings, but a huge reduction in wasted coating colour, equivalent to 42 tonnes per annum, discharged to the effluent treatment plant.

I make Sappi eco-effective. How about you?
