Metsä Board, part of Metsä Group, is renewing its Husum pulp mill in Sweden in two phases during the 2020s.
In November 2020, Metsä Board received an amended environmental permit for the first phase of the renewal. Final investment decision for the first phase was made in December 2020. The first phase consists of a new recovery boiler and a new turbine.
In the second phase of the renewal, to be decided and implemented later during the 2020s, the current two fibre lines would be replaced with one new. Metsä Board will now start preparations for the renewal of the Husum mill site’s environmental permit so that it includes also the planned new fibre line. The process starts with internal preparatory work, followed by a permit application later during 2021.
