We took our first step as early as 1961 when we added a kraftliner machine to our pulp mill in Munksund. In 1975, we took the next bold step when the kraftliner mill in Obbola was inaugurated. The world's widest machine, and above all the most advanced machine of its kind.
We made major updates over the years with clear goals to meet and trying to exceed our customers' expectations, like enabling the production of our Kraftliner White Top in Munksund with exceptional printability.
We have continuously increased our sustainability performance at both mills. The Munksund mill become fossil free 2014 by replacing the old lime kiln with a bio fueled one. Now Obbola will follow, starting up fossil free production in November.
We’re now witnessing an increasing need for sustainable, durable and attractive packaging. However, no new greenfield Kraftliner machine has been built in Europe since we took that bold step in 1975. It's time to make a move again for future generations.
We are finalizing the Mill of the future, investing 7.5 billion SEK, increasing our capacity from 450 000 to 725 000 tonnes while still lowering our carbon footprint. This will enable a powerful leap forward, investing in print on brown with an obsession to boost runnability and further improve sustainability. Simply put, we’re one step ahead taking
kraftliner to the next level.
The future is here - ahead of schedule
We were aiming for our new SCA Kraftliner machine at the Obbola mill to be up and running with its new increased production in early 2023. But sometimes things just don’t go to plan … and it’s open for business now!
Get ahead - by going green
Our new Kraftliner machine at the Obbola mill is the largest and most advanced in the world. We are also in the forefront of going green.
Limit global warming
Did you know that SCA’s operations are climate positive? There are several initiatives and improvements made in our entire value chain.
Growing trees will help us slow climate change
SCAs growing forest is an obvious contributor for drawing existing carbon out of the atmosphere, a vital factor in reaching the climate goals set by the United Nations.
