UPM develops cleaner ways to run paper mills
UPM’s Changshu Mill in China is one of the most advanced paper mills in the world. It was created to produce a variety of high-quality products as cleanly and as efficiently as possible.This is really a showcase and benchmark,” says General Manager Pentti Putkinen. “Changshu Mill was developed to lead the way not only for UPM, but for the entire global industry.” The mill can produce fine and technical papers, and this unusual flexibility is extremely challenging, particularly when sustainability is such a high priority. Timo Heinonen, who was Project Director, uses water as an example.
