SCA wishes to grow in renewable energy and to offer more products that contribute to the sustainable development of society. Through efficient forest operations, industrial tradition and innovative development, the best possible conditions exist to create the biofuel of the future.
Biofuels are an important part of a circular society
Biofuels based on sustainable raw materials play a key role in climate transition. SCA wants to participate and contribute to this product segment as well and is investigating the possibility of starting a biorefinery for production of biofuels.
Many countries require the admixture of biofuel to vehicle and aviation fuel, and demand will exceed supply for the foreseeable future.
In October 2022, SCA began ground and land construction work just west of Östrand's pulp factory in Timrå. The new area will be approximately 20 hectares, roughly the size of 40 football pitches. The land and land construction work will continue until 2025.
