May 10, 2023 - Mondi announced an upgrade program for its Dynäs pulp and paper mill in Sweden, which will increase efficiency and further improve the overall environmental performance of the mill.
The Dynäs mill produces high-quality sack and specialty kraft papers, used for a variety of paper-based packaging solutions for industrial and consumer industries, and is an important part of Mondi's Flexible Packaging business.
The project includes the installation and upgrade of machinery and equipment such as a new cooking plant and bark boiler, which will improve the mill's energy efficiency. Upgrades will also further reduce air and water emissions, and result in better wood utilization at the mill.
"The modernization program at Dynäs represents a significant investment in the future of this well-established mill," said Roman Senecky, COO Mondi Kraft Paper. "By producing sustainable sack and specialty kraft paper, we continue to contribute to our MAP2030 goals and meet customer demand with innovative solutions such as Advantage StretchWrap, an alternative to plastic film pallet wrapping, and Advantage MF EcoComp, used for high strength packaging like paper bags for wet organic household waste."
The Swedish Land and Environmental Court approved Mondi's works application in March 2023.
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2026.
Mondi is a global leader in packaging and paper, making innovative solutions that are sustainable by design. Its business is integrated across the value chain — from managing forests and producing pulp, paper and films, to developing and manufacturing sustainable consumer and industrial packaging solutions using paper where possible, plastic when useful.
