Metsä Group (Metsäliitto Osuuskunta)

Metsä Group has made a bold promise to be fossil free by 2030. In order to fulfil this promise all fossil based energy and raw materials are to be converted to fossil free. While looking for solutions, we also study opportunities for production of fossil free chemicals and even fossil negativity.

Metsä Group looks for cooperation in renewable chemicals production at some of its sites as part of the fossil free future of Metsä Group.

Metsä Group leads the way in the bioeconomy. We invest in growth, developing bioproducts and a fossil free future. The raw material for our products is renewable wood from sustainably managed northern forests. We focus on the growth sectors of the forest industry: wood supply and forest services, wood products, pulp, fresh fibre paperboards, and tissue and greaseproof papers.

Metsä Group’s annual sales is approximately EUR 5.5 billion, and we have around 9,200 employees in 30 countries. Our international Group has its roots in the Finnish forest: our parent company is Metsäliitto Cooperative owned by 100,000 forest owners.

Our aim is to build a pilot scale production unit based on hydrogen production combined with carbon capture from lime kiln or utility boiler at one of Metsä Group sites. The pilot plant would produce hydrogen, oxygen and chemicals and also provide storage for renewable weather based electricity.
