The pulp and paper industry has become very mindful of 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.
Metso’s eco-efficient solutions and products primarily relate to renewable energy sources, 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 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.
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. Read more about the importance of material efficiency
