Stora Enso starts new dispersion barrier line in Forshaga
FINLAND (News release) -- Stora Enso has completed the installation of dispersion barrier technology at its Forshaga site in Sweden and production has now started. Completion of the installation follows the company's EUR 10 million investment announced in 2020. The installation was carried out on time and the production of new products will be ramped up during the coming months.

Dispersion barrier technology enables the production of more sustainable packaging solutions, facilitating the use of renewable wood fiber materials in demanding end uses such as food packaging. These products are also easier to handle in a recycling process, have a lower carbon footprint and can be composted in industrial facilities.

"When striving towards a circular bioeconomy, new ways to create even better properties for paperboard packaging are needed. Completing the installation of dispersion technology in Forshaga is an important step in our innovation and sustainability agenda. By enabling industrial production of eco-friendly packaging materials, we can meet the increasing consumer demand for sustainable and circular packaging," says Hannu Kasurinen, Executive Vice President, Packaging Materials division.

Since last year, the site in Forshaga has become a competence centre within Stora Enso's Packaging Materials division, tasked with developing and producing new bio-based material technologies and products.
