June 23, 2021 - Mondi has approved a EUR 125 million capital investment project at its semi-chemical fluting mill in Kuopio, Finland. This investment will increase the facility's capacity by around 55,000 tonnes per year to meet growing customer demand; enhance product quality and cost-competitiveness; and strengthen the mill's environmental performance.
The project includes an upgrade of the wood yard, fibre line, evaporation plant and paper machine. Start-up is planned for the fourth quarter of 2023.
ProVantage Powerflute®, the semi-chemical fluting produced at the mill, is a high performance and top quality containerboard grade. Due to its high strength, moisture resistance and durability, it is a key component of fresh fruit and vegetable trays and boxes as well as specialised applications.
