DS Smith extends partnership with GE to target emissions with new gas turbine technology
LONDON (News release) -- DS Smith and GE Gas Power, a world leader in natural gas power technology, extend their partnership at the Lucca paper mill in Italy. The new aeroderivative gas turbine is the latest configuration of GE's dry low emissions technology offering higher output and increased efficiency, ultimately enabling the paper mill to reduce emissions.

Producing 420,000 tonnes of recycled paper annually, the DS Smith mill in Lucca is one of the largest in DS Smith's global network. The new technology being deployed will result in a 2% increase in efficiency at the mill, which will deliver a substantial reduction of gas consumption and CO2 emissions. Over a year this is estimated to be almost 2 million standard cubic meters of natural gas and up to 4,000 tonnes of carbon.

Today, the DS Smith paper mill in Lucca has the most efficient LM6000 gas turbines in Italy, according to GE, and the continued partnership will further improve resource efficiencies and contribute to DS Smith's corporate goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030.
