Södra Cell is planning to implement a new pelleting plant at Södra Cell Värö in late 2013.
The plant will supply biofuel to both external customers and a new lime kiln that is planned to start in late 2013, too. The raw material for the pelleting plant will come from Södra Timber's sawmill in Värö. Raising production at the new sawmill will also increase volumes of sawdust and planer shavings. The produced biofuel is planned for sale, but also be used as a fuel in the new lime kiln.
The total investment on both the lime kiln and the pelleting plkant will be abeoz 500 million SEK. The pelleting plant will have a capacity of a bit more than 100.000 tons/a.
