Nordic Paper has ordered electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) from Valmet for its paper mill in Kristinehamn, Sweden.

The order is part of Nordic Paper’s investment to further improve the sustainability performance and the competitiveness of the company’s Bäckhammar mill, which manufactures unbleached kraft paper [strong, smooth brown wrapping paper] of different qualities, primarily for packaging purposes.

The ESPs will reduce emissions of dust into the air by more than two-thirds.

The delivery will include a complete flu gas cleaning process to install the new electrostatic precipitators to the existing recovery boiler with any required demolition works, ducting and auxiliaries.

The order is included in Valmet‘s orders in the fourth quarter of 2023. Its value will not be disclosed. The installation will be complete by the end of 2025.

Valmet product sales manager, environmental systems, pulp and energy business line Jonas Gestranius commented: “This delivery strengthens our partnership with Nordic Paper in both scope and depth. It is a key milestone for both companies and demonstrates Valmet’s ESP technology that helps customers achieve near-zero emissions.”

In late 2023, Valmet supplied automation systems to UAE-based paper distributor Union Paper Mills. It secured a contract from a subsidiary of China’s pulp-paper integrated enterprise Shandong Tian He Paper (Shandong) in January 2024.

Nordic Paper recently invested Skr850m ($78m) at the Bäckhammar mill to establish a new wood room for flexibility in raw material sourcing and production efficiency.
