For 10 years the wastewater had been running hot from the bleachery at our Stockstadt Pulp Mill in Bavaria, Germany. Where others just saw heat, however, Kai von Groddeck saw opportunity. As a mechanical engineer, he knew he could transform this wasted heat into a new energy source for the mill. 
With innovation and ingenuity, we are making our mills eco-effective worldwide — reducing waste, emissions and maximising material and resource use at every opportunity. At Ehingen mill in Germany, we achieved a big eco-effective ‘win’ in 2019 by substantially increasing the amount of pulp we produce at the mill instead of purchasing it on the market.
At Sappi, we’re focused on eco-effective actions that can reduce our water consumption and improve the quality of treated water we return to the environment as part of a circular economy.  That’s why we’re especially proud of Lanaken Mill’s achievements in Belgium. They pioneered a new wastewater treatment system that not only meets but exceeds the requirements under Belgian law.  
Water is vital to all life, and especially to our business. Water not only nourishes trees but is used to make pulp and paper, generate steam power and so much more in our mills. That’s why we take so seriously our role as responsible water stewards in the regions where we live and work.   
Kirkniemi Mill, located in a lakeside city just one hour’s drive from Helsinki, produces far more than exceptional coated papers destined for high-quality printers. Thanks to a project with the Länsi-Uusimaa Water and Environment Association, the mill is also supporting the revitalisation of threatened aquatic species in nearby Mustionjoki River.
Seeding and growing human potential is at the heart of sustainability at Sappi—beginning with our own people and extending to the communities where we operate around the world. In Europe, we are especially focused on programmes that support youth. 
Resource efficiency is key in all operations at Kirkniemi Mill. We make more efficient use of resources throughout the life cycle of our products, starting with product development.
Yes, pulp and paper manufacturing is energy intensive. But with Sappi, the energy we both consume and produce is increasingly green AND beneficial to surrounding communities. Take a look at what we’ve achieved at Gratkorn mill and beyond in the surrounding municipalities in Austria.
