SCA works actively to make use of the entire tree and all parts of residual streams. The most valuable part of the tree is refined in the sawmills into wooden products. Some of these become window components, painted panels or shelves. Just over half of the log becomes solid wood products. The rest becomes wood chips for pulp production or shavings that are processed into pellets. The bark is used for energy production.
SCA's new facility in Obbola, outside Umeå, has now been inaugurated. This means that the paper mill has the world's largest machine for kraftliner and with it a significantly increased capacity to produce climate-smart packaging material.
