The power plant boiler number 11, originating in the year 1986, will be modernised. It provides the two paper machines of the Sappi factory with electricity and steam. The modernisation project will be implemented in two steps by the end of 2021 and will also ultimately lead the company to completely end its reliance on coal.
"In the future biomass and temporarily natural gas will be used as the main fuels in Boiler 11. Our objective is to make CO₂-neutral steam and electricity available to a large extent," says plant manager Max Oberhumer. The application of advanced technologies will enable Sappi to reduce its CO₂ emissions in Gratkorn by 30 percent.

The Gratkorn plant alone, which serve as the firm's largest production site in Europe, has a workforce of more than 1,200 employees producing 980,000 tonnes of double and triple-coated paper each year which is used across the globe for publications in premium quality. 250,000 tonnes of totally chlorine-free (TCF) bleached pulp are shipped from the factory every year. About 95% of total production is exported.
